Default Help/Advice request (Sony Mavica FD87)

Hello. I recently borrowed a friend's Sony Mavica FD87 and really liked the camera, it's pic quality, and it's ease of use. Plus I could just stick the floppy in my computer and the pics were right there. I have looked at some on eBay and on various camera store websites, and the price is in the range I am willing to spend. However, I have looked at the Sony website, and I cannot find the FD87 listed as a current model. Has it been changed to the FD100? I still see the FD87 on some websites, but are these refurbished models being sold as new? (I'd rather not get a refurb if possible.) This would be my first digital camera purchase. I am not looking for all the super high-end whiz-bang doo-dads, just a good, reliable camera I can use for emails, various classified website postings, and good detail pics of various VW/automotive interests.
So I guess my real questions are:
Is the Mavica FD-87 still available as a new camera?
Should I trust an eBay purchase, listing it as a new camera?
Or should I purchase through a "normal" on-line store?
Is there a better choice (in the Mavica FD line)?
Any help, advice, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
