I was watching the Saturday auto/truck related programs on Spike TV cable network and in between commercials, there was Spike TV's little ad. I noticed the Powerbook keys that caught my attention. Then the keyboard was shown, the back of the display with the Apple logo, and more pictures of the Powerbook from all vantage points show in rapid succession with the Spike TV logo at the end on the back of the Powerbook. Don't know if it was the 15" or 17" but a nice little ad overall.

It's a 17" PowerBook -- that clip came out about a year ago, just after the 17" was released. They've been using it as one of their standard logo spots ever since.

I like how Spike didn't try to 'inconspicuously' cover the Apple logo with duct tape.

It's a 15" TiBook, look at the hinges. I paused it (Tivo) to get a closer look.

They have used a 15" TiBook in earlier spots, but the newer one uses a 17" AlBook -- it has the distinctive lack of visible hinge from the rear, and the distinctively wide speaker grilles flanking the keyboard.
