As has been pointed out, iBooks *are* Macs, as are TiBooks and Xserves.
Incidentally, does anyone else think that the Xserve just oooooses tech

I recently bunged a box in Telehouse Docklands with a group of mates, and
when we were picking a box, for an ickle while it was "hmmm, dual PIII or an

running :)
