Hello

if you have a pc desktop you can try hackintosh osx , distro is iatkos L2 lion 10.7.2 , just make sure your motherboard is compatible and video card also must be compatible , insanelymac web forum can help you alot. but if you have the money to buy a real mac that is the best minus the learning curb to install osx lion o.s.

I found the hackintosh route not very good for learning OSX. There are just to many incompatibilities.

I'd say look in to a mac Mini that is a few years old or look at a Macbook Pro 13"
I have the MBP with a dual boot windows 7 and it is a good machine on both fronts.

There is a website called Power Max which sells used Macs all kinds located in California.

Apple computer prices are pretty much standart across online retailers. Assuming you are from USA, the best places are Amazon, BHphotovideo, bestbuy or Macmall

the MacMini will be the right choice for you I believe, its the cheapest entry. Altough you may use your display, keyboard and mouse, you have to get the apple magic mouse in order to get a full experience. Also, later on, go to macsales.com and order 8GB of memory, its less then $50

Why must you have to buy the magic mouse?
