    Macs are commonly used in Movies and TV shows. From what I remember in the movie Bedtime Stories, an iMac, BlackBook and 1st gen. iPhones appeared in various scenes throughout the movie.

    ...to the extent the producers want a snappy computer but don't want to flaunt Apple products so they put a sticker over the logo. LAME!

    They're everywhere!

    I've seen Macs in loads of films and TV shows. A few off the top of my head:

    - Entourage (all the way through the series, almost like a Mac history)
    - The Devil Wears Prada (all Macs in the Runway offices)
    - House (seen a MB Pro in a laboratory, House himself has one at home)
    - Constantine (Rachel Weisz's character has a PowerBook G4)
    - Knocked Up (several Macs throughout)
    - I Am Legend (Mac Pros with Cinema Displays, MacBook Pro used by Will Smith)
    - The OC (several throughout)
    - The Omen (the photographer uses a PowerBook + Cinema Display)
    - 24 (I think the good guys use them sometimes, bad guys get Alienwares :p)

    The list could go on forever. It's not so much that Apple pays for product placement - it's more that Apple Macs look the best so they're used more often on TV and film.

    LOL that's exactly what I was thinking while watching the movie. Owning a computer (particularly in a 5 year old's bedroom) is even worse than owning a TV, especially with the vast possibilities of Internet these days....

    Tack on Chuck, 30 Rock, and HIMYM. This topic is interesting only to the extent that we all like Macintosh computers - but they're used so often it's not like finding the needle in the haystack when you see the Apple logo on TV.
