garden vacuum

I've been turfing my back garden and its coming on a treat but i have 2 trees in there and even now one has started to drop leaves on my nice turfed lawn and flower bed. The tree's are not massive, about 20to 30 ft high so there won't be a mass of leaves, Now i'm thinking on buying a garden vac but not sure what to get. Don't want to spend stupid money as my garden ain't massive. Any adeas.

    Surely the mower will just gobble up the odd stray leaf? And then you can use your rake when they drop in quantity in autumn. You'll get quite a reputation if you start hoovering your lawn every day!
