Need suggestions for cheap computer

I'm interested in buying my first computer for my hybrid. It doesn't have to do anything fancy. I just want to track my speed and miles. I am not sure if it is better to go wired or wireless. I don't want to spend more than $50. Please provide me recommendations.

$20 should get you a wired something.. Trek/Bontrager has some.

wireless costs more + you have 2 batteries to replace, in the future vs 1.

I got mines at walmart for like $20 or less. Does current, avg, and max speed. Current time, total time. Reset function for a new workout. And ODO for overall miles done. Pretty simple but I like it.
