    Sony's VAIO website has a “lounge” where one can go to learn more about VAIO computers, the VAIO lifestyle, or something stupid like that.

    What kind of computer does the gentleman appear to be holding? It sure looks like a Titanium PowerBook.

    I asked Sony—while feigning interest in a purchase—and the response was

    Perhaps the “T” stands for Titanium?

    HAHA. I see this all the time! This is because of all of the ad companies know that Apple computers looks good. Kinda like sex-a-peal sells clothes and other stuff.

    Well spotted, that is obviously the TiBook. I love the response from Sony as well, reckon they're going to take it down?
