There is no such thing as a "best" editor. Which one you know better NOW?
If the goal is to study Python (assuming no previous experience), go
along with the easiest for you. For starters, if you are using a  GUI,
go with Python's own IDLE environment. It is not "advanced", but neither
are you at this point. And it does have some advantages (like immediate
execution of commands to try out things).
Spending time learning a complex editor like vi or emacs, will certainly
pay up in the long run though.
