Long before the "I'm a Mac. And I'm a PC" commercials came out (it's been running since 2003), '''''Applegeeks''''' was promoting the agenda of switching to Mac. A college-based SliceOfLife comic with a few surreal elements, it's utterly filled with ProductPlacement -- and Apple isn't paying a thing for all the advertising. Its co-creators are writer [[Webcomic/JohnnyWander Ananth Panagariya]] and artist Mohammad F. Haque.

* ShipTease: Gina/Hawk looked like it was going to happen for awhile, but that's changed. Also occurred earlier with [[HeroesWantRedHeads Naku]]/Hawk, though this subplot abruptly vanished along with both [[BrotherChuck Naku]] and her [[WriteWhoYouKnow real-life counterpart.]]

* TokenMinority: Hawk may or may not qualify as a TwoferTokenMinority, as he is black and Muslim (as evidenced by his honoring Ramadan); but the "Token" part is misleading as he is modeled after the original artist.

* {{Crossover}}: A few times, both with ''CtrlAltDel'' (Hawk beats down Buckley with his laptop) and ''{{Megatokyo}}'' (Piro just...[[OneSceneWonder pops up out of nowhere]], but doesn't directly interact with Hawk)

* ScheduleSlip: ''AG Lite'' updates every Monday, Wednesday and Friday without fail (though it was only Wednesdays and Fridays at first, the first Monday comic being #49). The main ''[=AppleGeeks=]'', however, updates erratically at best - and has been recently reduced to only a single issue per week. As a result, despite AG Lite beginning in 2006, ''three years'' after the main comic, the [[WebcomicsLongRunners thousandth overall comic]] was AG Lite 476 (Wednesday, June 24, 2009)--almost half of the overall output. In fairness, a black-and-white comic ''strip'' is considerably easier to make than a full-color, full-page comic. In late 2010, updates started to become sporadic at best until Haque finally put the comic on hiatus.
