I am glad to see this is typical. I thought it was just my office were this sort of thing happens daily. Good to know we aren't strange.

It's difficult to see, but it looks like an Apple Macintosh SE. I found some information here.

Yeah, the guy in the front row has the dual-floppy SE (hard drives are nice and all, but power users need to be able to copy dem disks). If you look carefully, the guy behind him has an older machine. The case is more rounded and the single floppy bay is molded into the case. It's either an original 128/512K Mac or a Mac Plus.

The Lisa was twice as wide as a compact Mac; the screen is the same size though, in the upper left corner. The right half of the case is consumed with one or two massive 5MB hard drives.
