    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.

    they have many models ;) thin ones and wide ones lol

    Maybe they used this:
    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.

    Its a dirty compaq

    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 memory isnt the best.

    it was amusing though.

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