3. I take close up picture's (inside a pc case, etc etc)
4. I small video option it a plus (not a most)
5. I dont want to buy a $ 400 camera if i dont need to

The s300 is perhaps not the best choice if you need to take macro pictures inside a case, as the focus range in macro mode is 16-76 cm.
With the A80, A70 and s400, you get get closer - 5 cm.

If you want a really small camera, maybe the s400 would be better,but it's a bit more expensive.
If you can get your hands on an A70, maybe that's a good choice. Excellent pictures, very good VGA movie mode, and manual functions if you get tired of just point-and-shoot. The A80 shoots lower resolution movies, but is an improvement on the A70 in many ways.
I can imagine that using the swiveling LCD would really help if you want to take pictures inside a pc case! Its point-and-click abilities are very good too, with 9-point AiAF autofocus, compared to the A70 5-point.

At bhphotovideo.com you can get the A80 for $359, and I know that you can find it for even less.
I can really recommend the A80!
