The laptop certainly looks like an Apple Powerbook.

I've no idea what the desktop one is, but it isn't any Apple that I recognise.

i actually thought the black guys head had been added rather than the white guys, but now i look closer you can see a bit of cloning has been done around the white guys head on the window sill to accomodate for where the balck guys heads been removed.

mountain out of a molehill I'd say. All they did was localize the advertising. Negro's would not be that common in Poland after all.

I wonder why they didn't have another picture, but then Microsoft are big on seemless advertising worldwide so the decision was probably to alter the advert rather than make a new one.
