Chances are pretty good you donit own an Applecomputer. Itis not a dig at Apple, but rather just a statistical reality. Globally, only three out of 100 computers sold over the last 12 months were Apples.

And while millions ignore Apple at the computer store, over the years itis been much harder to ignore Apple Computeris(nasdaq: AAPL - news - people ) advertising. Call it what you will: clever, ridiculous, brilliant, puffy, pretentious or ingenious. But when a new Apple ad debuts on TV, you have to watch it. Youill likely look forward to seeing it again. And chances are Apple has spent enough money to ensure you will see it again. Itis been that way since Apple launched the Macintosh with a groundbreaking Super Bowl spot in 1984. And itis likely to remain that way for as long as there is a company called Apple Computer.

You can check out the slideshow and poll at Forbesi Web site. As of this writing, 1984 is beating Think Different for favorite Apple ad, while Lemmings and Snail are running neck and neck for least favorite.
