By the time you add a board with a processor, you're in the $50 range..
I use these at work:
Well, actually I use the EL-USB-2-LCD.. which logs to internal memory
and can't log/unload data at the same time and which requires a windows
That said, they work well, come with a traceable cal certificate, etc.
I don't know that they do 0.1 degree (the data sheet says 0.5C, and I
think that's the logging accuracy), and, well, humidity sensors are of
dubious accuracy away from the middle of the range
