I watch S&C (http://www.hbo.com/city/) and have wondered what type of Apple laptop Carrie (http://www.hbo.com/city/cast/character/carrie_bradshaw.shtml) (Sarah Jessica Parker) uses. It looks like the Powerbook G3 (http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powerbook_g3/stats/powerbook_g3_400.html) ; am I right?

Anyone else wonder what type of Apple laptop is being used by someone in a movie, show, etc? :) If so, who and what's your guess.

almost every movie or TV show anymore has the new powerbook or iBook in it. they used to all use the black powerbooks and paint over the apple so they wouldnt have to pay royalites, but the powerbooks now are too unique.

I have seen Lex Luther in Smallville use a Ti Powerbook, but I think he may be using sometime else now.

It may be a Lex Luther was a good guy he had a powerbook, but as he turning more dark (bad), he may be using a pc. ;)

In the movie Swim Fan I believe the guy is viewing Iphoto when his girlfriend almost catches him looking at nude pics of the stalker girl. :)

It's a really good movie, but after its over you feel kina cheated. I never timed it but I duno if its just shorter or a really good movie and you want more of it. :footinmou

i was just watching TechLive on techTV and they did a segment on the dave matthews bands (my fav band) tour tech and their techies use 15" powerbooks for all of the setlist updates, archiving and recording shows for the database. i also saw for all the lighting and sound equipment they monitor everything using 23" lcds

I was recently forced to watch How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days and it turned out that it was a pretty good movie.....Anyway....they use the new iMacs in that movie. I thought that ruled. Also, in one of the deleted scenes, they show Kate Hudson using some sort of Tower, because you can see the Apple Studio Display.
