Vegas Movie Studio is no longer in development so you should look at the latest versions of Vegas Pro but check that your system has sufficient specs. There is a 30 day trial available.

If a slide show is your main concern, you could also recommend Photostory deluxe from Magix, is better focused on this task, albeit different operating logic, but rather simple. Some complex fine tuning as in Vegas Pro is omitted, but you also need much less know how than in Vegas.
The price is currently around 50$, at least cheaper than Vegas. You can also get a free trial version here.
