You can get one for cheaper than that! Parakeets are parrots and can learn just as well as any other large parrot!
But if you have to get a big one for hundreds of dollars, you can try going with an African Grey or a Quaker Parrot!

An African Grey is going to run you about $ 1,000. I also wouldn’t recommend them to a first time parrot owner. I would recommend a parrotlet however. I have several and they are wonderful pets with all of the personality as a big parrot, in a small package. They are not nearly as loud as a large parrot, african grey, or lovebird.
Whoever coined the saying “good things come in small packages” probably had a Parrotlet as a pet. In spite of their small size (around 4 inches long), these little characters have all the personality and character of their larger cousins, the Amazons. Pronounced “Parrot-let” meaning little Parrot. Parrotlets are the smallest of the Amazon Parrots.
Parrotlets are amazing, intelligent, adaptable, energetic and are capable of speaking just like Parrots. (See audio clips below) And because they can not scream, Parrotlets can easily be kept in a small apartment without fear of complaints. Overall, they are one of the quietest hook bills you can keep.
These hand-fed birds become completely devoted companions who enjoy spending time with their owners. Parrotlets are quite comical either playing with toys or hanging by their beaks and toes. Unlike many large Parrots, they have no problem entertaining themselves all day with their toys while their owner is at work or school. But when the owner returns, they will chirp welcome greetings and expect to come out to ride around in a pocket or hide in their owner’s hair.
Anyone looking for a large Parrot personality in a small Parrot body, need look no further than the Parrotlet. Parrotlets are delightful little Parrots whose antics can provide hours of entertainment as well as many years of devoted companionship.

FYI– Mfsuperspeed is absolutely INCORRECT about parakeets being able to talk. A budgie (parakeet) holds the world record for having the largest vocabulary of any bird at 1,728 words. This was in the 1995 Guiness Book of World Records. I’m unsure if this record has been broken, however, they CAN talk.
