    Apple doesn't sell cheap laptops, any one you get can be counted on to be above a certain quality threshold.

    The cheapest model is the MacBook Air, which starts at $899 new. While it is slower than a MacBook Pro and lacks the Retina display, it's still quite powerful, and is considered a great developer machine by a lot of people.

    If you want to go the refurb / used route, I'd try to stick with anything newer than 2012, personally. Anything before that probably won't work with the Continuity / Handoff features in iOS 8.
