Two more ideas are a Sheaffer Targa and a Pelikan M200.

The Cross century is a nice pen simply I personly think the other pens I mentioned are much better.
One more thought is a Parker 75,with some luck you can get one for less than 90$.

Good luck with that.

Oh and what is the difference between a vac-fill and aerometric fill? I might get the Parker "51", but I might get something that is easier to find...

Are you buying a pen to write with, or a pen to look at? If you want a good writer, there is none better than the "51". if you are only ever going to have one pen, then you'll need one that won't break, won't suffer the inevitable eventual pitting of its steel nib or the relatively rapid wearing through of its gold plating, and won't wear out. That's an aerometric "51". (It has a gold nib, not steel, and the plating on a chrome-plated clip is likely to last longer than you do.)
Sucked in? If you actually care about writing well, easily, and comfortably, you won't be able to NOT get sucked in.

Search for the Parker 51 profile and read it. It gives an excellent background as to what made it such a great pen, and why it's still one of the very best available today, even if it is 50 years old.

Which one is better vacumatic or aeromatic? The vacumatic looks easier...

Although coming back to the 51 thing...I'm a big guy, with a big hand, and I'm quite comfortable writing all day with a 51.

Want a 51? Look in the Marketplace. You'll trip over them.

I LOVE MY CROSS!
I've had a Century II for several years and I just have to say that it's probably my favorite pen. It never leaks, writes beautifully and always at the first stroke, and the nib is probably the smoothest that I have.
I'm comparing this with several other pens that I have including the Pelikan 200; Waterman Carene; the Waterman Charleston; and Aurora Ipsilon; and others....
Hope I don't get hung out to dry for admitting this!
