Godaddy has an option to go with a dedicated ip, rather than sharing. I've read a few places that this can help with SEO, or at least prevent any negative consequences of a "bad neighborhood." I'm wondering if there is anything to this and if its a good idea.

It may be fine to use them if you need a cheap domain name and just need a bit of space to goof around in. But if this is an important site or one that you plan to grow into a big one then I would look elsewhere.
I'm sure others can answer your question better about the SEO stuff, but I thought I'd put my two cents in.

I've had good luck with godaddy so far, though when I first started they did tend to upsell a bit agressively. I will say though that I've never had much traffic on any of my sites, I'm hoping for a little more with this new project, so I'll check into a few alternatives.
P.S. I did buy 10 .com domains from them today, including the proxy registration service on the domains, it was about 91.00 . . . which I thought was a good deal. Was I wrong?

GoDaddy is probably no better or worse than any other big hosting provider.

No, I won't be running an email service. So, If t here aren't any real advantages for me, then I'll skip the dedicated ip. Its not a lot of money, but it does just about double the price per month.
