Some minidisc recorders do allow you to transfer digitally.  I have two 
Sony models - the first I bought for a lot of money (£200?) and it 
doesn't.  The second I bought for £30ish when minidiscs were going out 
of fashion and it does allow you to transfer directly via USB. So you 
might get a great bargain if you look around.

Currently I use an m-audio microtrack II which allows for balanced mics. 
  Its less than £200.

The Zoom kit looks great value too, and has a decent reputation.

Of course there might not be much wrong with using a cheap dynamic mic 
and the sound card on a laptop, in conjunction with Audacity (which is 
great and free).
