    Hi All!

    Just a quick question to those of you in the UK.

    I was watching BBC news the other day and noticed that the newsreaders had in front of them nice shiny silver laptops in front of them (who knows what they use them for!)...are these PBs or are they PCs? There is a logo on the back but I couldn't make out if it was an apple or something else.

    Thanks,

    AJ

    They're generic crappy looking PCs. Note the curved top, and round plasticky-silver blob where the Apple should be. Nothing to see here...

    I think they are PC's, you occasionally get a side shot and they have black keyboards.

    Someone's copying Apple's form-factor again.

    PC's indeed

    Ya, I'm pretty sure they're Dell's. Imagine them with dark plastic - the centre silver circle is the 'logo' for the Dell Laptops. Must admit, have no idea what they're there for; aint seen them in use!

    They should be using a Powerbook. Maybe they're also waiting for MWSF in January! :)

    while channel hopping i say that Triiny and susanah use G5 imacs.

    Didn't stop me from turning over though.
