A new Arden Hamlet will be available soon: one that includes Q1. Still,
my copy of the 1982 edition is dog-eared from use. Until I see the new
Arden, I recommend the Jenkins text--combined with The First Quarto of
Hamlet, edited by Kathleen Irace and published by Cambridge University
Press.

I'd definitely recommend Jenkins for a single modern-spelling edition.
It's also worth picking up a cheap used copy of the Dover reprint of the
Furness Variorum on Abebooks.com. If you really want to look at the
source texts look to the Enfolded Hamlet, online at
<http://www.global-language.com/enfolded.html>. (You can get it printed
for a few bucks by ordering the 1996 Shakespeare Newsletter "Extra
Issue" containing it.)

I'd also recommend a new edition that Bernice Kliman has spoken well of
on this list, and that I also find useful:
