Second Life Media, Merchandizing: Pearbook Store
Found the store that sells Pearbook laptops mentioned earlier. The laptop does have a functionality allowing to send emails to the real-world addresses (much like the SL's internal IM system). The Pear brand is an apparent parody (or tribute) to Apple. Note the store design and free t-shirts (note to self: take pic of t-shirt).
In-game, you can also buy laptops copied after an actual Mac product; you can also find iPods, including the newest one with video capabilities. This iPod shuffle sells on SL Exchange for L$200 ($1.50) and comes pre-loaded with 6 songs.
