In Virgina there was a near riot when Henrico County held a sale of 1000 iBooks because they were switching to Dell. Seventeen people were injured with some needing hospital treatment. If you haven't already seen the story:-

Not really sure how much of that it is the Ibook and how much is just the fact that a computer (could have been any make) was being sold for US$50.

Nope, and when OSX86 was found to be hacked, their response to that was classic.
