Anyone else notice how old that picture is? That is likely a IBM Thinkpad T4x series laptop, running IE6, I recognize the OLD yahoo IM icon, possibly version 6 or 7, I see a Palm Quicksync tray icon, symantec antivirus (the enterprise version of norton antivirus) tray icon, multiple thinkpad specific tray icons, itunes, the WMP share tray icon, I think a quicktime icon...

Easily fall/winter 2005, considering the canon powershot came out in October of 2005, I almost bought one, but got a dSLR and never looked back lol...

Is it sad I could recognize that much out of the picture?

Nah, old school > new school. Not when it comes to computers...but life in general.

It's running Windows 2000, yaaaaaay ;)

I thought it was running windows 98, but I've never used 2000 so its possible. One thing I did notice is that it is certified for windows xp (near his wrist, partly covered, next to the intel logo). The battery icon looks nothing like that on windows XP but looks like the one on windows 98 (and maybe 2000).

The guy who bought it didn't like windows XP?!
