    These pictures are blatantly fake, they're not taken in an elevator...

    Makes sense to use an all in one for shows. Much easier to set up and transport.

    Quit giving the newbie a hard time. He doesn't even know what the elevator is, poor thing. ;)

    Is that the LA auto show? Went there last Monday and yup, everything was mac except for one lonely Sony Vaio at the Gumpert display.

    Greg?

    I'm kidding. Macs are clearly more aesthetically pleasing to many. Simple as that.

    They are not fake.. good lord people lol. I was at the LA auto show and saw them too. These ones were at the Ford section. One of them showed the braking and one of the other ones had it where you placed your face close to the screen, click on the screen it takes your picture and the picture is inserted in another picture. Pretty cool.

    The Saturn one had there emblem on the front of the iMac that is all. I was going to mention this also. My comments to my friend was well if the company is going down they are going down in style lol...

    Of corse they use macs. Especially now, in all their aluminum glory:D

    Plus could you imagine. Your a representative for a automotive company. And you keep trying to show of your latest technology. And vistas keeps bugging out on you.

    They weren't serious. I'll break it down. Every time a picture related to mac news is posted someone inevitably tries to find out if its fake or not, which subsequently resulted in someone calling any photos posted fake whether or not they actually put time or thought into it.

    As for the elevator comments, search it. Its a not-so-secret inside joke in the MR community.

    Way to ruin the joke. :D

    well there was no internet and the clocks were wrong anyway, those ford people at that set up did not know macs well enough to set the prefs.

    No, it was the auto show in central Florida.
