Dear Liviu,

Following the links Martin has sent, would be my recommendation, as well. 

In addition: From my point of view the great advantage of Emacs+ESS is that you can send your code from the editor to the R process. Furthermore, the possibilities of navigating within the text using keyboard commands offered by Emacs makes work very comfortable.

I think one doesn't even need to be a "power user", as you said, to benefit from this.

Best wishes,
