I really like Spe, Stani's Python editor found here
http://pythonide.blogspot.com/ .

It really manages to keep everything clear open and accessible whilst still
providing a tonne of features and support. There are some intro videos
avaiable here.
http://showmedo.com/videotutorials/series?name=PythonDevelopmentWithSPE .

I have never seen Pycharm as JJ suggested so am going to check it out, I
only recently installed Eclipse Helios with Aptana 3 which includes Pydev
and Django support so I can't really offer an indepth opinion but it is an
open source community with a lot of support which if you are learning am ide
as well as a language could prove very helpful. A lot of editors don't have
much in the way of documentation or community which I think is important.

Another verygood option I like and have used a lot is DrPython

Ultimately though for keep the ide learning curve low and providing power I
still go for Spe, if I had the money I would definitely look at wing ide.
