You may be (incorrectly) using the terms 'discrete' and 'dedicated' interchangeably...

I'm not that familiar with laptops with dedicated Nvidia graphics, but my guess is most of them are gaming laptops and will likely run more than $500.

There are many laptops with non-dedicated Nvidia laptops (Nvidia Optimus with dual Nvidia+Intel graphics), and perhaps even some in your price range, but such laptops when used on OS X cannot use the Nvidia chip and are limited to only the Intel chip.

Yes, maybe.

I will run a tri boot so if dedicated gpu doesn't work in MAC I don't care. Just want a laptop with hackintosh and nvidia dedicated graphics card.

A laptop with Nvidia Optimus can still use Intel graphics in OS X.

No. I'm not interested in discrete graphics (not a gamer), and therefore have not shopped for such a device.

Also, prices tend to depend on your location in the world and the retail outlets available to you.
