Hey I want to get a hand held recorder. I would prefer a digital one that I could possible upload to my computer. I would like something that could do a broad range from acoustic to distorted guitar (I am running a Fernandes Monterey through a Mesa Boogie F-30) and vocals. I am not looking for amazing quality, just something decent so I can start recording some song ideas and riffs so I have them for later. If you have any suggestion or advice on what to get or what to stay away from I would greatly appreciate it. Also I saw a that Olympus put out a really nice one but it was like $500. I am looking for something more in the range of $200 and under. Though the cheaper the better. Thanks

why dont you just run a mic straight into your computer thru a freeware recording software

I might do that later down the line, but for now I just want a handheld recorder so I can take it to jam sessions and also so everytime I have an idea i don't have to go and start up my computer and make sure everything is set up right and then start all over trying to remember the riff. Here is an idea of what I want but maybe cheaper if there are alternatives.

Zoom H2. It fits your budget, and even comes with a pretty good microphone. Here's a review.
