    Yeah I saw it too. :rolleyes:

    It looks like they forgot to sticker the logo.

    Sweet! I love that show. I remember a PowerBook on the show a few years back too...

    Looks like an iBook to me... but, anyhow, I'm a big fan of Hyneman, and it doesn't surprise me that at least one of the Mythbusters use Mac... they've probably busted all the myths about Macs and confirmed all the Windows ones a long time ago... ;)

    The keys aren't like that on an iBook and they are flush against the edges.

    There is visible space around the keyboard in the image and it's the little chicklets keys.

    This is only true with the 12" iBook. The 14" iBook would look like what is in this picture. It's too close to call... I can't decide if the lid looks like a widescreen or not. I'm going to go with 14" iBook, but in the end, at least he's using a mac!

    Definitely a 14" iBook...you can see the screw in side of the top lid. The MacBook doesn't have that.

    I think it is a 14" iBook as well. The top display part looks too thick to be a macbook.

    Hmmm... I believe you're right... I was just looking at the form factor, which looks more like 4:3 than 16:10... but that might be because the TV screenshot has the wrong aspect ratio... :)

    EDIT: Or maybe not... I still think it's the 14" iBook... The MacBooks don't have the small screws on the side of the screen cover...

    Edit 2: And it seems that I'm not the only one believing it's an iBook... :)

    The power cord in that image is connected to the right side on his laptop and the power cord connects to the left on the MacBook, further look at the dimensions - that is not a widescreen laptop!!

    But still cool that he uses a iBook! :)

    edit: I switched the right and left!! haha... I'm such a reliable source! :D

    Oh, dang. I didn't think of the 14" iBook.

    Oh, well. It's still a Mac.

    It's a 14" iBook. Look more closely at the keyboard; that is not a MacBook keyboard.

    14" iBook

    The display is square and the keyboard isn't sunken into the case. And I can tell since I have the same computer.
