Apple has posted the new “Lethal Weapon G4” commercial for the new PowerMacs. The ad, which we belive to contain more tanks per inch than any previous Apple commercial, includes a fabulous and mildly ironic chide at the “harmless” PC world.

When the Power Mac G4 became the first personal computer to cross the threshold of one billion floating-point operations per second (also known as a gigaflop), it entered the rarefied realm of supercomputing?and got the attention of the U.S. government. The Pentagon regards supercomputers as ?strategic technology??in effect, making the Power Mac G4 a weapon that shouldn?t fall into the wrong hands.
