What Mac to buy, for starting iOS app development

I wanted to learn creating app on iOS and need get a Mac computer.  I don't have any experience with iOS development yet, though being a well experienced programmer. With a budget of $600 or less, I need suggestions on what's a good computer/platform to buy (including used ones), so I can have a smooth start and quick success in get a sample working  app onto, say, an iPad, while features and speed of the machine are not yet my main concern.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
