Default Microphone Help

I got a 1501 Dell Inspiron Laptop, and i'm looking for a high quality microphone to record music tracks with. Does anybody know where i could find a microphone that would produce that crisp vocal sound for music recording?

You need several things: a condenser mic with shockmount, a decent sound interface with phantom power, pop filter and mic stand along with a daw such as sonar, cubase, or nuendo. Its not gonna be "high quality" unless you spend a decent amount of money and know what youre doing. give me a budget and i can throw some sugestions out.
