Why not a Hackintosh (Installing OS X on a PC) ? Cheaper, easier, faster :)

If other people in the team need OS X but can't purchase one, just watch over here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/

Beside behind not legal, it ain't easier: a lot of things can go wrong (as I saw in the past) and therefore is useless for a testing machine. Plus we weren't looking for insane speed. And we already bought it. ;)

Why go to the trouble?
You can't be sure it will behave identical to a real mac. You have to worry about license issues (is it legal). What about support?
Just simpler, easier, less worries and ultimately cheaper (considering support, time spent etc) to just get a real mac.

"Only Hiura"

We're all doomed! No but seriously, I hope you enjoy it.

So, it will your part of job - programming in Xcode? My condolences... =)

You're absolutely right, using Mac alone is enough of a punishment.
