    Hmm.. I love seeing my favourite computers in videos/films/shows so I decided to start this thread! We already share wallpapers and About this Mac dialogues so why not?

    Post pics of frames in which a PowerPC computer appears (anything from the earliest ones to a PMG5 quad if ya can identify it from a Mac Pro).

    Please post where ya saw it and what Mac model is shown.

    I remember seeing a PowerMac on Guiding Light (aka, the longest human narrative in history). I wish I would have screen shotted that. :(

    However, I also wish we'd see more iMac G4's even today. That design, I think, could hold up even today.

    I have. Impossibly beautiful design. All they'd need to do is find a way to plunk in an Intel and a graphics chip for a "retroboot iMac."

    I was just about to post that.

    There's a load in The West Wing. As much as I'd love to rewatch it all and grab Toby's PowerBook history (G3 and TiBook mainly) I don't have the spare time right now.

    2 minutes on YouTube got me this :

    That episode is from the week OS X launched, and Josh normally used a generic beige desktop PC. Odds are good that it was product placement.

    Those old colorful iMacs that were all over everywhere when I was in schools in the late 90's - 2010 or so

    They are in so many movies and shows, or referenced in some way with a model that kind of looks like it. I'm pretty sure there are even websites that cover it lol, Apple must have been dropping all kinds of money I assume or maybe it just became a fad for a while

    One from Men in Black two {I think }

    It was a pop culture thing really. I worked in a computer superstore at that time, and we had some people in from the local TV network and independent program makers wanting information on iMacs and iBooks with a view to purchasing them for use on programmes in production.

    The colourful companion to the G3 iMac that was also all over Late 90s early 2000s tv and occasionally still creeps up on shows as a prop.
