Youre gong to have to go used, as even a Mac mini is $600 plus.

You can get a used Macbook for about that price though.

You could get something like this:

Apple MacBook 13.3 Laptop - MB063LL A May, 2007 | eBay

Core 2 duo 2.1GHz, 2GB of RAM (I'd upgrade to at least 4).

The GPU isn't great but it's enough to learn on, and those MacBooks are very common.
