    It was in Brazil, I think in Brazil the public can't have ammo in the same calibers as the Police so it is likely sub-9mm, maybe a .380.
    Of course, that's assuming the BG followed the laws.

    I don't think it was a mugging...more like some irrate PC'er that got frustrated loading Vista on his/her computer and witnessed the fat, dumb and happy Mac-head beboping near the local favela....Mac Pro in hand.

    This is funny I have to admit:

    Even if small caliber - pretty amazing it didn't cripple the machine.

    .32 acp IMHO. 9mm is a military round not available for civilians according to their laws
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Mac, takes a licking and keeps on ticking!

    Looks like it's one of the new Intel chip Macs, I think it's got the camera over the screen.

    In any case, it's amazing the thing survived! Those things are so compact, don't know how it could have missed EVERY vital part.

    If the Mac had Windows they could escape.

    If the Mac had Windows they'd be trapped behind the blue screen! But then you wouldn't be able to see them, would you?
