errr... wrong! Take a look at http://www.apple.com/ibook/ see the big
letters on the right hand side that read "The most affordable *Mac* portable

To give the machine it's full title would be "The Apple Macintosh iBook" but
even without giving it that title it is made a Mac by two other things. 1)
it runs the Mac OS natively 2) the system ROMs and bus architecture were
designed to operate as a Mac.
