I know this is OT and probably a taboo suggestion but if you can settle for installing OS X on a PC then you have some more budget friendly options.

On a side note, this might give you an excuse to replace your current rig with something new! ;) (meaning, get a new rig and use the old one for OS X)

I found a site in the US, that sells used mac mini's. You can pretty much customize it with whatever you want, and get the price you want. IE you want a dual core processor, your base price is $400. If you can settle for an older single core, your base price is $300 etc.) they allow you to add in dvd burners, wireless, bluetooth and that jazz. it seems to be the best bet if you're seriously looking. I'll pm you when I get to work tomorow, as I cant remember the site right now

I've been looking for the same for about a year now, and I rarely find great deals on them, and when I do, they're already sold :(

The base price for those systems looks alright... but i would stay away from the upgrades... it would be much cheaper just to do them yourself.
