    You could be right, but I still doubt it. :confused:
    The angle of the photo makes it look like a longer laptop.
    How thick is the Compaq ? The laptop on the pic is pretty thin.

    I wonder if the ad was local or made in USA.

    Looks like a powerbook to me, but who cares? It's an OFFICE add. They sell Office for both OSes. They don't even sell hardware, so it's probably not a big deal for them to put Mac hardware in the ad.

    Is it me or have a lot of these "Mac sighting in Windows ads" been popping up recently?

    That is not a powerbook. the logo is completely round like the compaq someone posted above, also the screen is too thick.

    Well, the logo could easily be an Apple logo.

    Actually, I'd argue the image resolution is not sufficient to eliminate the possibility that it is a PowerBook. Nor is it sufficient to say that it is definitely a PowerBook.

    If you ask me, the answer is, however, obvious. Look at the expression on the face of the guy using it. I've only ever seen that kind of happiness using a laptop come from a PowerBook, never a Windows machine. Thus, I'd say that it is, definitively, a PowerBook. ;)

    i remember about 6 months to a year ago there was someone using a powerbook on the microsoft website or something...my memory isnt the best.

    it was amusing though.

    Regardless...

    Its an ad for Microsoft Office, which is available for the Mac.
