    Apple sets prices for new equipment no matter who sels it, so you won't find anything cheap. Best bet is to look for used stuff on ebay or craigslist if you have one in or near your city.

    Just buy the OS and install it along with your windows OS and have a duel, no need in buying a whole new comp. unless you just want to pay that much for one... just my opinion though...

    that sucks, my dad is controlling like yours

    yeah, do a google search for hackintosh. there are a lot of resources to get OSX running on non-apple machines that are running x86 based hardware.

    as far as finding cheap apple hardware, unless its used you probably won't. apple does financing if that is an option for you. that's how i paid for my macbook. if you're in school (high school or college), they also provide educational discounts.
