    G'day,

    I've been a Twentieth Anniversary Mac fan and owner since 1997/8, and just spotted a poster on ebay that I've never seen before:

    Anyone know if it is genuine?

    Is there a site with all of Apple's posters to consult with?

    cheers

    The "New Macintosh" doesn't look right, it looks fake to me but i could be wrong.

    Thank-you for the reply, AQUADock, much appreciated.

    Yes, the "new macintosh " just seems wrong, doesn't it...

    Over on MacTalk(Au) they're calling fake...

    The seller (eBay) was also selling 4 legitimate Apple posters... So I wasn't sure. It looks to be on thick paper/card... most of the angles look pretty clean... but the "Hi" on the TAM doesn't look quite right either...

    Wow... Seeing those other ads etc, I'm actually almost sold that it is genuine... Though indeed, maybe it was very limited release, as the other (err, only?) TAM poster is much sexier...

    Yeah, saw your post on the other forum. I don't like that one actually. Doesn't grab my eye, nor does it represent the TAM very well. Apple doesn't usually play with their pictures.

    Generally speaking, I'd want an ad for a computer to show me - well, the computer! :)

    But as the TAM was something of a special beast... and as the ad (proper one) kind of mimics the TAM's box... I like it.

    (Not that I'm paying $150 for that poster from the guy on eBay that's been trying to sell it now for years!)
