good bike for a little person

I am getting back on the road after many years off, and looking to update with a new bike. I am just under 5'0", and my old bike was 44.5 cm with 27" wheels. I will not be racing, just club riding, so 27" wheels are not a necessity. I am thinking of looking for a bike with 650c wheels in the interest of getting a little bit tighter geometry, in the ~$1,000 range, but can move on that. I am partial to steel, just a traditionalist. Short top tube would be good for my proportions, although that is in opposition to the tighter geometry I that would like to have. There are many options now in bikes with women's geometry, but I am curious to hear what people like. Your thoughts and passionate opinions would be appreciated!
