That said--Burnet's edition long reigned as the gold standard and still exhibits formidable virtues. But even setting aside Helm--at a price well north of $100, it's a stretch. Readers very likely will be able to find a suitable used copy at a much lower price.
There remain other choices. Readers who want a full text but who don't want either Helms or Burnet can take a look at the old Dyer-Seymour edition which I review briefly here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000V1RBBE. Meanwhile, readers who want to read some of the Apology but not all probably be able to get what they need from the excerpts (sic) published by Cambridge in "The Intellectual Revolution," out just now (2015) in a second edition from Cambridge. See http://www.amazon.com/Intellectual-Revolution-Selections-Euripides-Thucydides/dp/0521736471/ref=sr_1_10?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1429750131&sr=1-10 (for those really strapped, the first edition ought to be sufficient and will surely remain available in the secondary market) (but stay away from the electronic version).
Fn.: yes, Burnet includes the Euthyphro and the Crito along with the Apology while Helm does Apology alone. Still I suspect most readers will make their choice based on the Apology only.
