mpx4115ap is a good start (motorola pressure sensor)
it outputs between 0.2 and 4.8 volts from 150mbar to 1150mbar
you only need to give it 5V

If you want easy to use Pressure -> Digital output, check the INTERSEMA sensors.
Ive used them and are very stable, even at low temperatures and low pressures.

Motorola MPXH6115 is a small SMD pressure sensor, good for mini weather station or altimeter project.
