    Link: What Laptop does Microsoft`s CEO Use? - You`d think he`s at least cover the logo up when he uses it during a corporate presentation.

    not surprising,
    Microsoft has always made lots of Mac software. I`m pretty sure Steve Jobs has a Dell(running Unix), and I know for a fact that Microsoft has used Macs before.

    I think you people just can`t accept the possibility that there are Mac users out there who aren`t pretentious fanboys.

    Also, Microsoft specializes in Software, not hardware, and if I remember correctly, Macs can run Windows no problem. I have Windows Vista on my HP, and had XP on my old Sony Viao. So I think, who cares if it is shopped or not, Microsoft is a software company so why does it matter?

    "and someone stole my name! I`m known as Ron Burgundy at school"
    I do believe for me to steal it, you would have to have it in the first place, I can`t steal something form you that doesn`t belong to you...I don`t think.

    I get that the picture is supposed to be funny, and it is funny, but more than likely it is photoshopped :P . And to everyone saying "its not hardware company its software Derka-DER!!so they use macs all the time because thats hardware, berrrdeee der!!", ya you`re right but you have to remember that Apple produces the Mac OS, which is Microsoft`s main competitor. Now it wouldn`t look very good from a business standpoint to be using your main competitor`s product at a presentation for your own product such as this one, now would it?

    Not shopped! MicroCrap Execs are currently pushing the Microsoft Office Suite for Mac OS. The Mac is a high end Power Book. It is also running an Intel Quad Core. The RAM is 6 gigs. Windows Vista can`t use the RAM the same way Mac OS can. You will not see a mixed up laptop released to the public like these at all.

    It doesn`t need to be shopped...

    The place I work provides you, (and anyone who comes to give presentations) with a laptop hooked up to the projector. All you do is either bring, or send, your presentation.

    If he`s giving a presentation somewhere that uses a mac.... there you go.

    You`re also assuming that`s his laptop, that he`s currently giving the presentation (and not a lackey testing it to see if everything works), etc.

    Not that unlikely. Now that Macs can run Windows, Microsoft couldn`t give less of a damn about how well their computer`s sold. The more people that buy a Mac, the more people can use their Mac to run Microsoft programs.

    Now if you see him with a computer running Linux...

    My first post. Been a CDRom for a long time. Hi all~
    Just thought I`d point out that the big Microsoft board should`ve blocked the laptop being used, so ppl shouldn`t be able to see it from the front.
    On the "geek" side, look at the noise and measure the perspective with a ruler. There was no clone marks, and the perspective aligns to left and right. The apple logo from mac book pro lights up, so it could be brighter even in the shadow.
    And that gives the picture a big HAHA!!! XD

    Im guesing your pretty new to computers, its the other way around Windows/linux is stuffed full of open source/mods/shareware, Pc crashing? head to mac fix it, a site that deals with the MANY MANY bugs attributed to serious skimping on hardware. high end Special effects are pc/linux only, hardware severly limits particle calculations on a mac, however pretty macs are there good for one thing....chucking in the bin.

But ya, I do give macs the point on being simple for creativity, i.e. pictures, video, but if i were big on that, id have a cheap mac laptop to use for only that purpose. Then it can starve for my attention in a dusty closet while I actually play games on my PC

    Digital cameras saves RGB images, so there will be RGB noise. The color profile of the image is Canon--digital camera then. May I ask what are the minor lighting differences?

    I don`t use mac, all the things I like to do and games I like to play can`t be done in mac.
    I have an AMD Phenom quad-core and 6 gigs of ram.
    I don`t use Windows, it`s unstable, and I can`t even use my hardware to the full extent.

    Kubuntu does it all. It runs all my windows games through wine, I can use any amount of cores I want, and I can take advantage of my rediculous amount of ram. Not to mention that a good portion of my developing programs are Linux-ONLY.
