    Well either an entry level iMac or a mini would be suitable based on what you're needs are.

    yes, actually even an older model will be fine and you could save some money, also check out the refurb section of apple.

    As long as it still has warranty on it. Otherwise it may break the day after the purchase and you'll have to buy again.

    In any case I'd look for something with a 9400M oder newer as the models with the old Intel graphics are said to be quite slower.

    Exactly, which is why I'd recommend an Apple refurb.
    Apple refurbs come with a 1 year warranty which can be extended

    Right, but in the post above the refurbished store was one of two options. ;) And with a used model I'd check twice as you don't know what the previous owner doesn't tell when selling :).

    Some good suggestions above. A refurb would be just fine. You will love your mac!!! I promise.
