I wouldnt advice you to buy a 49-key keyboard (all under 100) put spend perhaps 20 more on a semi-weighted keyboard.

Like this one:

M-Audio Keystation 61es Semi-Weighted MIDI Controller Keyboard at

If you feel you need 88 keys, you will pay more (M-Audio Oxygen 88 Key Graded Hammer Action MIDI Keyboard at

Then you need to hook up your keyboard to your Mac by using a simple Midi-to-USB cable like this one

E-Mu Xmidi 1x1 Tab USB MIDI Interface at

I have the same type of setup (al though a full 88 key electric piano) which is connected with the USB interface cable directly into my Macbook Pro using Logic and/or Garageband.

The links provided are from a UK shop.
