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.

For his buy, Britten will receive a 17-inch PowerBook, a 40GB iPod, a gift certificate for 10,000 iTunes songs to create the ultimate music library for his iPod and the opportunity to create his own Celebrity Playlist to be published on the iTunes Music Store, according to the statement.

"As we cross this historic milestone, we want to thank our customers, the artists and the music labels who have embraced our dream for iTunes," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, in the press release.
