Is there a way to learn Swift without buying a $4k+ USD Macbook? Can someone tell me how to dual-boot or get Hackintosh?
I really want to learn Swift Development, but I don't want to spend $4k on a Macbook.
Can someone tell me how to dual-boot/install Windows 10 and MacOS both on my computer? Or how to install a Hackintosh? Dual-boot and Hackintosh is the only solutions I can think of without spending $4k (Not from American so it's going to be very expensive).
I'll probably save up for a Macbook in a few months. If I had a choice, which Macbook is the best in terms of 'Bang for your buck'?
I would very much appreciate it if you have any better ideas or suggestions to share.

Well there's great news for you! Swift just went open source. Not all of the features are really out there yet as I understand it, but it's being made available fast. The downside is that you're still going to need another OS to run it... namely Linux. I prefer the Ubuntu distribution. Here's a link to a great tutorial about how to get it set up. Keep in mind though, that when you go to download Ubuntu version do not get the newest one. Get the one talked about in this tutorial.
Hope this helps (and maybe saves you some cash)!
