To be honest, you really should try to learn a bit more about photography, and camera technology, before making final judgments on a camera that's right for you - but if you are just looking to jump in with both feet and want the highest specs you can get with regard to sensor size, then the Sony RX1 will win the 'size' battle with a full-frame sensor about double the size of the APS-C sensor.

But there's more to it than that - how much low light capability do you need, how much resolution do you need, what controls do you need, what speed or performance do you need, what ergonomics will work best for you, how will you be using your photographs, will your skill level match the camera's ability, and so on. Getting the biggest sensor in a P&S camera won't necessarily mean you're going to get the best photographs, or even that you'll be a good photographer. There may be reasons a smaller sensor, a less complex camera, or just a different design may actually meet all your needs better, fit your shooting style and skill, cost a lot less, and make you happier overall with your results.

Just try to consider more factors when considering a camera than the one with the biggest measurement in any one statistic.

Well said, too many people are swayed by headline features such as sensor sizes, megapixel counts and so on without considering the broader aspects..
