Default high quality point and shoot

Hey there guys, started off with a SLR [minolta] then to DSLR [canon] then to ultrazoom [canon] now looking to simplify to a higher end point and shoot. I've gotten into the habit of taking less and less photos especially due to the size and weight of my previous cameras. I'd like to have something I can take with me on a day to day. Would love rugged and reliable but really want the quality sensor more then anything. The Canon s90 was the first pns that sparked my interest in a good dslr alternative. Would love something along those lines, looking to get advice on a good value [street price] high end pns.

Any ideas?

If you want it to fit in your pocket- Canon's S100 is a very good- and very small- compact camera. Good IQ for a p+s and all the manual control if you wish to indulge.
Prices are pretty good at present as they've released their latest S110...
My "pocket" walkabout is my Olympus XZ-1- again, nice IQ by p+s standards, with snappy shot to shot times and start up. The stabilizer being sensor based isn't as effective as some, but the f/1.8-2.5 lens offsets that somewhat..!
Panasonic's LX-5 is another nice quality compact- and like the Canon S100 can be had at reasonable prices due to the introduction of the LX-7.
Fuji's X10 is a lovely little camera which might be worth looking at- and a little further up the price scale- though arguably worth every penny- is Sony's RX100
