As far as computer compatibility, they're all compatible now. All you need is either a card slot on your computer that takes the same card as your camera. Most cameras use SD cards, and many computers come with SD card slots. Even if the camera uses a different card or if the computer doesn't have the slot, all you need is a card reader.
I never link the Camera directly to the computer. My old Canon used CompactFlash cards, and I plugged a CompactFlash card reader to the USB port on my laptop and put the card in the reader. My new Canon uses SD cards, and my laptop has an SD card slot, so I can just put it in like an old-school floppy disk.
