I've always have wanted to get a Mac mini but I can never afford one. I have a credit limit of 300 on my card so I'm going to use it for building a hackintosh. I have most of the parts but the few main parts needed to build it.

Motherboard
CPU
Memory
OSX for Intel (Universal)

I have found the parts and the motherboard even has the TSP chip that Apple and Intel both made so I don't have to use a modified copy of OS X. Just have to use a 3rd party bootloader to force boot OSX or get a hold of a intel mac and do a ROM dump and force flash the BIOS on the PC and it will be a full fledge mac by using EFI instead of BIOS. Thing is it's not all illegal since this is the same hardware that Apple uses. Since Apple buys their hardware from Intel technicality I can build a mac with out the middle man of Apple. All I have to do is buy a legit copy of Universal OSX and it's alright.

Motherboard
1GB DDR
CPU

In the range of $286.00 before tax. The CPU isn't a Core Duo but it will work just fine.
