I am currently in a conundrum over the correct usage of "built-in to" when
referring to Macs with built-in Ethernet and LocalTalk.

I feel fine writing "Macintoshes with built-in Ethernet require a
transceiver...." but what about "LocalTalk is built in to every Macintosh

A colleague suggested "built-in _on_ every Macintosh" but that just doesn't
sit well with me. Of course in this case, I could rework to "Every Mac has
built-in LocalTalk" , but there other cases where reworking is not

Any ideas?
