A better way would be to buy a iPhone a MAC mini and GLBasic Premium.  ;)
If you really want to develope for the iPhone you must have a test device (or more) to debug your games!

I bought a MacBook 13" in ebay, dual core, 2gb ram, 250HD, broken DVD  for €350. It is the best option, to buy a Mac. You will not regret it.
check my web and/or my blog :D

Especially Apple laptops. Macbooks are really really nice computers, and OSX is IMHO much better OS for portable computers.

Mac desktops are a bit overpriced and I don't like all-in-one design philosophy, but Mac laptops I think give fair performance for your money.

That's the only solution I came so far, but buying an use mac here in brazil means paying for a new one outside brazil, even on ebay it will tax me 100% over the price...

A friend of mine has an intel mac mini with broken DVD, I 'm going to borrow that, just have to install system from a pen drive(is that possible on mac?)

I will fork out for the cheapest i-pad, 16gb no 3g, and that will cost around 900 dollars... :puke:

I hope whathever I do sells at least to cover this.
