Most of the clones work well enough, some are a little cheaper but lack 
on-board USB.

I think Circuit Hacking Monday has kits for Diavolino:

Other options:

You can buy an AVR programmer (CHM also has these kits 
http://learn.adafruit.com/usbtinyisp) and use it to flash the Arduino 
bootloader on raw AVR chips, make your own Arduino clone! (I use mine to 
program a lot of $1 ATtiny chips)

Jameco, Radioshack, etc sell Arduinos locally.

If you can wait a few weeks for delivery, ebay has inexpensive clones in 
smaller form factor with USB:
