Which Mac for college on a budget?

I'm starting college this year. And I won't be able to purchase my laptop until midterms mid October. I'm still searching. My budget will be about $1000. I am majoring in business, minor in computer science. My current laptop is an acer aspire 17 inch from 2 years ago, its not doing so well, I tend to get viruses a lot. I do live off campus about 20 minutes away so cost ans portability are important to me. I will buy an external 1tb hard drive down the road if I need to. But I would prefer not too. I do a small bit of photography as a hobby. But I'm looking for a fast computer, easily portable, and cost effective.

Mac
