The $400 Open Macintosh
Guys, this may be a turning point, with Windows Vista in dire straits, and linux continues to struggle for market share....
Psystar, a Miami-based IT services startup, started advertising the $400 OpenComputer this week. It's a generic PC that comes with Leopard, Apple's latest operating system, pre-installed...
Based on the company's website claims, engineers at Psystar appear to be emulating parts of the Mac firmware on a Windows PC -- fooling Leopard into thinking it's running on top of genuine Apple hardware.

Be very careful when you buy from that company. All they are doing is taking the work done by insanelymac.com and netkas's EFI drivers and turning it commercial.
Their price is also nothing to write home about. $400 does not include a copy of Leopard and iLife.
They also mention that updates might result in turning your system un-ussable. If that is the case, then why bother with them?
All in all, if you want a Mac, buy an original. Or else if you are desperate, build one for yourself. Hackint0sh.org and insanelymac.com are good sources.
