Mac Controlled Whole House Zoned Music System?

What are some recommendations of a whole house zoned system? We are a new construction and are thinking about running a system that is runned through our mac. Which products are made that are going to make this the easiest? We will have in ceiling speakers on the screen porch & covered porch on the same zone, dining room, kitchen, craft and laundy rooms on a zone, master bedroom and bath on a zone, and the living room will have in-wall surround sound on a zone. I guess we would need 4 zones, right? Also should we have the amp in the wall plate to run the speakers? I am trying to get educated so that if we decide to have the system installed I am not over sold. Thanks for all the help.

Savant is a new Mac based system. I do not have experience with it but was at Elite Media in Wellesley MA and they have a home theater set up using Savant. Pretty cool, could control blinds, lights, screens, etc with their iphone.
