    I wish this could be a poll, but there are so many choices.

    Mine is the most famous Think Different commercial featuring Einstein, Ghandi, Amelia Earhart, etc.
    I know it's such a well known commercial, but it's absoultely perfect! Apple should re-air this ad today. This ad can never get old.

    Although the "Think Different" ads weren't terribly successful, in my opinion they are the best.

    What is yours? Think Different!

    My favorite is either the one with Yao Ming and Mini Me with the 12" and 17" PBs or the iMac G4 ad.

    I'm not sure it was the best commercial, but the Ellen Feiss switch ad was hilarious.

    Dinosaurs

    My favorite is the Dinosaurs one.

    "Where are the Dinosaurs Dad?"

    Dad tries to get program running on a winbox

    "Where you going son?"

    I am going to the neighbors, they have a Mac!

    Just too cute

    I know this is a bit obvious but the Ridley Scott one is my favourite. I was 12 when I saw it and I sat there open jawed.

    When I watch it now I still get shivers down my back.

    Sad aren't I.

    Ellen Feiss was funny, but the original 1984 add is still my fav.. would love a nice HD version of it, but I think its to old.

    iMac G4 window, Yao Ming 12 vs 17 PowerBook, and the early one with the guy who was giving a speech with a display of his windows 95 notebook that he can't get the slide to work and people are calling out different commands to press in the middle of the conference, then someone says "GET A MAC!" :D

    I think my favorite would be the "Here's to the crazy ones" commercial...either version...but I did love the iMac G4 window commercial, too.
