I accidentally my whole location.
I just found this on /.

Go here, click on the Tablet PC overview demo, it'll open in a new window.
Wait for it to load and then click 'Tablet PC', then click the 'Powerful'
tab.
When it loads you should see something like this:

Nice working demo, flip 180, scrub logos, and insert something in the expansion bay - then call it the "modern PC".

Mac users will call it a PowerBook from the mid-1990s. :)

Nice to know that pre-G3/G4 PowerBooks are in-style for future PC designs.

...

look at how horrible the photoshoping on the floppy drive is! Poor poor MicroSloth... it's almost sad to see a company with so much money, suck so bad in innovation and taste (sans using the image of the old powerbook...)

PC tablet blows....

I don't know if I'm convinced it is the Powerbook.. many notebooks look alike.. how can we be sure... what is it you think, a Kanga? I'm not too familiar with pre pismo books...

Very close form factor though... why would they do it???

because it looks the best....

Actually something like this came up a few months ago, in another of Microsloth's ads. Here the thread with the pic (thanks to zarathustra). It's about midway down the page.

That image is definately the Pismo. And the image above is also a powerbook. Which one, I'm not sure, but the image is identical (when you flip it, of course....)
