    I'm not one to suggest getting a PC over a Mac, but if this is all you do, might as well get a cheaper PC. But, if you want to get a Mac (and I don't blame you) then you shouldn't need anything more than a MacBook. You could even get the cheaper used and refurb ones if you want. The new ones $1099 USD. The older MacBooks are $899+ I think.

    Check out an Apple store. Go in and talk to a Genius and see what they say.

    If you already have everything for your PC you could always pick up a mac mini.

    I personally would stray away from a Mac Mini. The reason I didn't suggest it is because I think Apple is either gonna come out with something similar and better, or they are simply gonna discontinue them. In the time the Mac Mini has been out, it has had no major hardware, or any, updates and changes at all. I think Apple realizes that they made an attempt to create something cheaper for consumers and it just didn't take off like they thought it would. It's really up to you though.
