It’s a post about nerding out on specific devices, so allow me to note If that Robot Co-op photo is from January 2006, those are PowerBooks G4, not MacBooks. Apple did not begin shipping the first MacBooks Pro until the following month, and the original MacBooks released later that year were clad in plastic, not aluminum, to match the PowerPC-based iBooks they were replacing.

You can also tell the ones with left edges facing the camera are PowerBooks: they lack the MagSafe power connector introduced with the MacBook Pro.
