Plan on spending $150 or less for what you want. Any of the $400 scanners are overkill if you aren't using them as film scanners. A $130 Epson 1670 should have more than enough resolution for work with prints and the drivers will have Epson's new color-restoration feature. Beyond that when it comes to resotration you're on your own. On the other hand at that price you probably wouldn't get a good editor so I'd either budjet $50-100 for something like Paint Shop Pro, or Photoshop Elements, or you could spend more, in the $250 range and look for something that comes with a copy of Elements as well.
