    That certainly is wow... just wow...

    It's an iBook. I'm literally looking at one right now.

    The ports visible (from left to right) Ethernet, Firewire, USB, USB, Video, Headphone. There's a modem jack further to the left, covered up by the yellow coloring.

    I saw that exact ad a few days ago, and couldn't help thinking how much like an iBook that laptop looked. Glad to know I was right.

    Well good grief.At least M$ marketing could use a Macbook instead of a PPC that won't run Windows.

    Hey, give them a break. They had to find a way to get a shot of people looking happy using a computer somehow, right? ;)

    "WOW! That's awful!!.. Hmmm. What's that laptop? An Apple? Ooh, I'll go and check them out now..."

    You will probably find the store the ad was in, hired and paid for the ad. I doubt very much that this has been approved M$. Also because 'most' design agencies use Macs and dont like PCs some sneaky designer has pulled this off quite well. Given the chance I would do it too. :D

    Well since it's an apple it explains why they have a smile on their face while using it :)
