Fortunaltely, there is no need to do such a strange move for a  
Mac&Linux addict...

There is the Sharp Zaurus which is amongst the best PDAs out there.  
It simply works for daily useage (software is stable!), has a QWERY  
keyboard, a twistable full VGA display (like the OpenMoko) and allows  
to install alternate ROMs with e.g. Angstrom, Debian, OpenBSD if you  
don't like the original Sharp Linux.

It can be expanded by CF (WLAN, GPS, GPRS) and SD cards.

And for syncing with a Mac, there is ZMacSync http://www.dsitri.de/
