    The foremost requirement is not Mac installed on a pc/laptop, but an Apple computer.

    If you are going to develop, you need to spend the money and actually buy a Mac.

    If you really want to install OS X on a non-Apple machine you should be able to Google instructions on how to do it yourself. Otherwise you need an actual Mac, especially if you ever plan on submitting something to the App Store.

    Umm, get a used Core2Duo or better laptop. The argument that it's "too expensive" is basically b.s. If you're going to learn software development on Mac OS, or iOS, you need the hardware. Not news. Not a secret. Been true since forever. If you want native apps, that's what you have to do.

    If you want cross platform apps, it might be a different story. REALBasic is cross platform, as is Qt. You don't need a Mac to do primary development on using those programming platforms.
