Kinda dorky that i noticed this, but anyone else notice the blatant picture of a powerBook on the front of microsoft's website?

http://www.microsoft.com (upper right hand corner...the grahpic about 'anti-spyware')

I'm going to have to say that it looks like the TiBook based on two observations. Both are rather unique to the Apple TiBook design.

1) Looks like it has the two smaller hinges connecting screen to base.

2) Apple-esque circular adapter plug.


I guess it makes sense though since after all the best was to defeat spyware is to use a Mac.

Side-by-side comparison:

You're SURE that's a Powerbook? I'm not convinced that it is.
Look closely at the base towards the front...you can see the little plastic airport antenna thingy's. Definately a powerbook.

Nope

The hinges the screen attaches to look wrong, it looks like one large one instead of two.

Hard to tell though, nothing definitive here.

it probably is - the screen has been photoshopped, so some other things might have been as well to confuse it more.

I live in a giant bucket!
My GF is insane when it comes to "Spot the Mac". She even spotted a box in a movie (can't remember which one) where the guy was moving and one of the cardboard boxes had a Apple logo. I mean this box was just a plain brown box, beneath three others and skewed so you could barely see it! :eek:

Yes, and my friends always make fun of me for it. But OMG they're everywhere!
