Many simple Arduino clones skip the on-board USB to Serial conversion and just include a 6-pin header for a $20 FTDI cable. If you want to save money you can find some $3 cellphone USB cables that do the USB to TTL Serial conversion. Many of those use the 3.3v LVTTL logic levels so be sure to get one that matches your operating voltage.
