I had three reasons for getting an iBook, and MacOS X was not one of
them (I actually never ran MacOS X on my iBook):

- I could get a US keyboard for it, but not for most other notebooks.

- It has a PPC CPU (with Linux-supported performance counters), which
is useful for the work I do.

- It was the cheapest 12"-laptop around (and there were rather few
offerings in that size).
