    I'm wanting to do some development of in iOS. At the moment I only have a PC.

    So, basically what's the cheapest Mac I can get to do the job?

    Tried this on two different built pcs now and it's SO much faff. And nothing ever works perfectly.

    This, you should be able to pick up a cheap one on eBay for developing your first app (make sure it's a Intel one though). You can always buy a beefier model once you're making money from your apps ;)

    Can you use Objective C on that? I don't know C++, but can get by in C, so was going to learn Objective C.

    It's stupidly easy, all my machines run OSX.

    Thanks, I'm an idiot, what is this site exactly? I've had a quick look and I have to logon before I can see anything, am sure it's worth it but a bit more info before taking the plunge would be much appreciated.

    You'l need a boot loader to boot the OSX disc, not used one for a while but boot123 used to do the job.

    Install OSX, run multi beast, install drivers / edit DSDT for your hardware.

    Job done.

    I'd spend as much time as you can reading up on it mind.
