Which is the cheapest Mac for a casual user?

Greetings. I use my PC for browsing the web and doing projects as well as online chatting and listening to music. I occasionally use it for gaming but I have a 10 year old PC and my options in that area are quite limited. Although the ability to play games is completely unimportant to me.

I'm looking for a cheap mac that can do all the above functions. A desktop most preferably as I have an Apple iPad that I take with me on the road. As well as an iPhone.

I'm looking to "converting" to be a Mac user since I'm quite tired of my PCs malfunctioning on me. The current one I have gets approximately 5 blue screens per day and its impossible to use it for anything.
