Whatever soap you see on TV they always seem to use Apple computers.
Is there some publicity deal with the producers?
Do the computers work, or are they just props?

Apple pay a lot for that type of advertising as do other companies that use product placement advertising

It's a little ridiculous actually, filmakers will go out of their way NOT to promote a product unless they are payed for it. Have you ever noticed generic no-name products you've never heard of such as soft drinks on TV or the movies? If they have a product placement deal you will get a long clear shot of the logo or product name at some point strategically slipped in.

Apple must be spending some money right now, I remember seeing a few Sony Vaio laptops on screen a couple years back also.

Especially bad in a few will smith movies.

To the point they had a discussion within the movie about his brand of shoes.

Anyone noticed the size of the Cisco logo on the router in movies like Transformers.

No, but seen a lot of Dell rackmount servers in films and TV shows.
