    eBay? Craigslist? But then again, it would be a pretty rare find.

    A Mac for 400 USD that plays Minecraft. A 2007 iMac can do that as far as I have seen.

    A Mac Pro!? Please tell me he meant MBP, no way you could get a Mac Pro for $450 that didn't need some major repairs/upgrades.

    You can forget it with a budget of $1300.00...

    You have $1300, so you can buy:

    An old and slow iMac/MacPro for $400, which even hard to find at that price point, unless it's very old or not working normally

    An old Macbook for another $400 which is even slower than the iMac.

    OR ...

    A new shiny 13" 2012 MBA which much faster than both, portable, plays MineCraft just fine. And for the remaining money, you can get external HDD for storage expansion/backup, or even a decent 21" display for extra workspace.

    How about that? Have you think it over?

    Then you need to save up more money if you want Macs, even older Macs. :)

    Sorry, but $450 is not going to get you anything recent. You're looking at 4 year old machines (at least) for that much.
