PowerBook G4 Ripoff – Right Down to the Advertising

A few days ago I recieved a pamphlet in the mail from WinBook (They sell cheap x86 laptops) and noticed one heck of a PB G4 knockoff.

It’s called the WinBook X1. Not only does it look like a PB G4 knockoff, they compare the X1 to the Sony Vaio (PCG-Z505TE – the same model that Apple compared the PB G4 to, I believe) in almost the EXACT same manner! They even use similar product shots! You have to see it to believe it.

What do you think about this? I’m wondering if Apple should look into this, since it’s an obvious rip-off of the PB G4, but even more importantly, the advertising!

Here’s the main link. Go exploring and you’ll see what I mean.
