    Did anybody else notice from Tuesdays episode, when the Olivias niece is playing on the new macbook that its not running OSX. It looks to be eithe running a version of Linux or windows.

    Just thought this was interesting.

    Any one else notice this?

    I've seen similar things to this. I think they run some type of extremely generic linux, so it can't be readily identified as a certain companies product. I also think that when shows/commercials/movies use last gen MacBook Pros, its because they are so simple when looked at from the front when opened, it just looks like a generic computer to those who are not familiar with it.

    you could clearly see the apple logo, and the macbook on the screen, however.

    Computer displays don't photograph well--though LCD's are better than CRT's--and many times an artificial display is generated, particularly for shows that have some incredibly advanced, instant-solution, totally fake "app" running. (CSI comes to mind :rolleyes:)

    Also, I bet it beeped and clicked more than any other Mac (or any computer, for that matter) in existence.
