The pro machines Apple used to make are 6 - 9 years old now but the high spec models are nicer than any of the disposable models they sell today or any of the cheap Windows machines out there. You could get a high spec quad core i7 machine that supports 16GB ram and two internal SATA devices for around $600 - $800. (Or even much less with a lucky snipe on Ebay.) Take care of these machines and they'll run for at least 20 years. Works for me. Worth considering if you were planning on spending 2x or 3x that on a lower spec machine or one of Apple's current disposable models (they no longer offer any 'pro' models at the level they used to make).
