that was the 'lamp' imac g4, whose display could swivel/raise into
nearly any position, with its arm doubling as a handle.

the ibook g3 looks very grungy, not something one would expect from a
unit put on display.

the setup was obviously done by a pc user because the mouse is plugged
into the ibook, which already has a built-in trackpad, rather than into
the imac, which is not only positioned sideways, but now has no
pointing device. 

both are from about 15 years ago.
