If you take the Hackintosh route, be aware that there are some subtle problems that can crop up. Doing an OS update can break you hackintosh. Also, 3D graphics support is a bit tricky. There are some who saY they got it working, but I could never find anyone who could say exactly how. 

I was right on the verge of having a friend of mine set one up (he had already made one for doing video streaming) but I told him I only wanted to go forward if he could guarantee that all the software would run and I could play 3D games. He wouldn't do that. I finally just sprang for a 27" iMac and I have never been happier.
