    Actually, there are some options for iphone dev even if you have a pc. I've been using dragonfiresdk to get started in mobile app dev. It's 100% legal unlike a Hackintosh, and its easy to dive into if you know c/c++. This is the only I can recommend cuz it's the only one ive used.

    Thx. Went ahead and gave this a try since I know c/c++. The api is proving to be clean and easy to understand. I wasn't sure if it was even possible to actually publish and sell apps to the appstore without a mac until now.

It's 100% lawful as opposed to a Hackintosh, and its simple to jump into if you know c/c++. This is the only I can suggest cuz it's the only one ive used.. .. . . . . .

    Hey toper_r
    The official SDK from Apple executes only on Mac machines, officially you can't build apps for iPhone on Windows computer.
