The Sharp MD-MT290 (, $230)
is a good choice.  Be careful choosing a
minidisc player that's much cheaper than
this.  They often don't have a mic-in port.

Minidisc recorders in this price range do not 
permit digital transfer of recordings from 
minidisc to PC.  You'll have to play the
recording through the analog audio out
(line out or headphone port), and re-record
on the PC.  Lots of people do this and
report that it works fine.

One alternative is to buy a Japan & European
market mindisc deck like the Sony MDS-JE780 
(, $460) that has S/PDIF 
digital optical output.
