okay, here's how I see it. did the majority of it at one point have apple warranty coverage? If yes, then it a mac.
As we move towards things being more convoluted by the nature of new hardware, it may get harder to define what makes a mac, a mac. Is it hardware, is it operating system, is it that jobsian flair that we're all used to? I dunno. If apple shipped it, then its a mac, if some dude pulls together a bunch of parts and loads up the mac OS, I tend to see it as a mac-compatible. I vote that we deliniate things as Mac (apple shipped and warrantied hardware), MC (mac compatible, intel based PC configuration), and the PC (a windows compatible, PC configuration)

Electricity tastes good. No, seriously.
