    Looks like an Apple sticker on something. That is just what the stickers that come with every mac look like. Just a guess.

    I think MacBook/PowerBook box is right answer.

    I think it's a pro box, a pro app large enough to have a box with a pull out carton...I think my Final Cut 4 box looked like that once you took the sleeve off, but I don't have it anymore.

    Macbook Pro box, because of it's thin profile.

    I agree, but you'd think you'd be able to see something on the left side of it.

    Here is the correct angle for the PowerBook box:

    The MBP box is too narrow:

    Could be lighting, but the box in the Mayer pic looks more glossy than the matte black of the MacBook boxes.

    Could be an iPod of some sort, but the box in the picture seems a lot bigger than an iPod box would be.

    Agreed, and on the original picture the apple is lower.

    And it's far too thin to ba a Powerbook box, right? And the pictuered computer is a MBP.

    So what is it? it looks too big to be an iPod box also.:confused:

    Yes, we agree that the computer is an MBP, but the box is too thin to be an MBP box. I strongly suspect that it is a PB box. Most of the pics I've found that show the depth of the PB box are for the 12" model, but saw a couple for the 15" as well. They do seem a bit thick compared to the one in the John Mayer pic, but that could just be an illusion from the angle of the pic. The other possibility is if the 17" PB box was slightly thinner, which could be possible since the larger computer would allow the accessories to be spread out more in the box...but I didn't see any pics clearly marked as a 17" PB box. Does anyone have one who can confirm?

    If you look at the CD sleeve to the left you will notice the sleeve and the box are both about the same width.

    Lok at the picture closely. It's glossy, but also has a crease in it. The boxes aren't glossy, are they?

    Is it even a box? I know that sounds somewhat farfetched and unorthodox, but who knows?

    My conclusion:
    Too thick to be an iPod box,

    The "Apple" is too low to be a MBP box,

    Far too small to be a Mac Pro box,

    And it's too thin to be a Powerbook box.

    Regardless of angle to all of the above.

    i dont think it's mac box... it's on the table, and has such a low apple logo... i was thinking 'bout ipod box, but the apple on the ipod box is shiny

    it's definitely not mac pro, macbook, macbook pro, nor powermac... i mean

    whats that white thing in front of it,

    (is the object even on the table?)

    what about the apple's ipod speaker, wifi or whatever its called...

    Meh...I'm still convinced it's a PB box, possibly a 17-incher. :D

    Hi-Fi's have white boxes, and are MUCH bigger than that.
