Anybody using a USB or Bluetooth Cycle Computer?

I'm lazy and I'm tired of manually logging my miles on an excel spreadsheet. I googles around and found this:

I wasn't looking for the GPS logging capability but for the price sounds like a good extra.

Anybody knows about something like this? with or without the GPS? Under 100 bucks (I'm lazy AND cheap)?

I'm not sure I've seen one under 100, but I haven't looked too hard.
There should be some units under $200 though.
A lot of them are infrared instead of USB.

I use a polar CS600 which is over the price limit, but they have some others, as well as Suunto and a few others.

I have also been looking for a bike computer that allows you to download your data. I have been searched google and this forum, but I can't get anywhere since words like download and computer bring up a lot of other sites instead. What I'd like to get is something basic like the Nike+Ipod that I have for running. I only need the standard features (speed, distance, time, etc) and the ability to store and manipulate the data.

The Garmin Edge actually looks pretty good for only $220. I'd still like to find something cheaper. I guess in my mind, I wouldn't think that it should cost so much more to include a memory chip in a standard bicycle computer.
