NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Apple Computer Inc. said Monday that more than 100 million songs have been purchased and downloaded from the computer maker's iTunes Music Store, and that the man who bought the 100 millionth song won a PowerBook.

The 100 millionth song, "Somersault (Dangermouse remix)" by Zero7 was purchased by Kevin Britten, 20, of Hays, Kansas on Sunday, July 11, according to a company press release.
