    I picked up a couple of HUGE Apple vinyl banners at a local thrift shop earlier today. These banners really are massive, I would estimate they are each 3'-4' tall and 12'-15' in length. They're so large I haven't even been able to unroll them yet and take a close look. I peeked enough at one to see a really cool G5 design, and the other appears to have something about a 17" Powerbook G4, but that's all I've got and I haven't found anything helpful on the Internet either. Anyone seen these before, or have any info on their background? Thanks for any help!

    Those sound massive. Maybe they're from MacWorld (Powerbook G4) or WWDC (Powermac) expos or something. I have only been to an Apple store 3x, but I can't imagine them using anything that big. Thats why I would guess expo banners instead. Sound like a cool way to wallpaper the garage!

    Here are the full banners... one of them seems to be an ad for Apple "Pro Care" and the other is a promo for PowerBook G4's. Please ignore the filth I'm in the middle of moving... (all laundry in photos is clean BTW) ;)

    The middle Powerbook there is actually a crap-tacular Titanium PB G4 :p

    Pro Care= earlier incarnation of AppleCare?

    Now that I've looked at them more carefully I'm thinking that they most likely came from an Apple Store somewhere since they are clearly advertisements... probably not from MacWorld... :(

    How much did you pay for them? Just curious.

    Those are really cool!
