    Does anyone else have fun spotting MacBook Pros in print and television ads these days? Sometimes, they try not to make it to obvious it seems by editing out the large :apple: logo, but you can tell it by its form, the colour or even the ports on the side.

    Is this some kind of addiction? :eek:

    I often see a lot where they have put small square of paper or something over the Apple on the back to hide it, but it's always obvious to tell what it really is :D

    Like on Nick, when all the laptops have PEAR SKINS...

    also, if you've ever looked through PB Teen's catalog, they have an average of 60 Apple things in each catalog!

    I have to say, that is one thing that bothers the heck out of me. First off, why is a 13 yo using a MBP to do nothing and second, why use a big ugly pear? Regardless, I love to play spot the Mac when watching TV or counting in a magazine (SkyMall anyone? They've got thousands of nonchalant Macs hanging out).

    Yeah, I completely agree. The only reason why a 13 yo is using a mbp is cause Apple paid for it to be there.
