I have 2 more Mac sittings!  The first one is an Aluminum iMac that can be seen in Adam Lambert's video of the song "Whataya Want From Me".  The iMac can be seen setting on a table in certain shoots in the video.  I included a screen shoot of the video playing in iTunes with the iMac clearly visible on the far right center side.  The second sighting is more of the paranormal kind.  I'm a hug fan of The Travel Channel series "Ghost Adventures"!  Whether your believe in ghosts, or not, I think the information & history of the locations is very interesting.  One day I was watching towards the end of the episode, and got a shock.  They were analyzing some video back out their base f operation, and I thought I saw a Mac.  I went back a couple times just to be sure, and yes there was a Mac Pro setting on the desk!!  They were using it to do their video analyses with, and I think also to run a few large displays on the wall above the workstation.  I don't remember which episode it was, but I still have it on the DVR, and I'll check it & post the episode latter today!  :-)  :-)

OK everyone, got that Power Mac on "Ghost Adventures" info! It was at the end of episode #37, originally airing on 10/29/2010. The episode was about the Vulture Mine, in Vulture City, Arizona. The desk being used is in the corner of the room, with one display on the desk, and two on the wall above. The Displays look pretty big, like in the 36-42" range! They may be LCD/Plasma TV screens?? The Mac Pro is setting to the right of the display on the desk. As I have thought about it, it could have been a G5 Power Mac, since the cases are basically identical. Either way the aluminum case is unmistakable, and who would miss that Apple Logo on the side!!!! :-) :-)

@ Melissa:  Haven't seen the Tron Movie yet, but that's awesome that there's a Mac Plus in it!!  I want to rent & re-watch the original first.  I was a little kid the last time I saw it.

 

@ familyguy9877:  I think I actually remember seeing this episode!!  Thanks for the reminder, and the pic!!

Too bad the show ended because it was soo good, but Lost was figuring an Apple II with and Apple III screen as a centerpiece.

Never watched the show, but the pic looks cool!  I don't think I've ever seen an Apple III except in pictures.  Looks like a cool combo!!

 

I think we may have had Apple II's in my Kindergarten Class.  If they weren't then they were IBM's that looked almost exactly like Apple IIs.  I distinctly remember the 5.25" floppy drives looking like the ones for the Apple II!

iBook Clamshell seen in the office of a dentist played by Steve Martin in the movie

"Novacaine"  also, for those who like cool wired cars, he drives a Citroen DS 19.
