Fruit Computers is a corporation that designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics, computer software and personal computers in the HD Universe. It was founded in 1975; one year before the company which it parodies, Apple Inc., actually became an independent company. Its best-known hardware products are the iFruit and the Fruit line of computers. Its software includes the FruitOS and an unnamed Graphical user interface. In 2008, the key people are Mr. E. Mann and Doug Hatchet.

Overview

Grand Theft Auto IV

The CEO, Doug Hatchet, has outsourced all of Fruit Computers employees overseas, except himself. Doug now is the sole occupant of the Fruit Computers Headquarters. All the company has left in it is a photocopier that doesn't work, and a stapler without staples. There is a Fruit Computers werehouse in Port Tudor, Alderney, however the building seems to be abandoned. Fruit Computers can also be seen advertised in various computer shops throughout the game. On WTF billboards and advertisements it can be observed that Fruit Computers is one of the musical's sponsors.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

The player gets a Fruit Laptop in every safehouse (pink in the DS version, black in the PSP version). The player is not able to access the internet, but it features e-mail and Rockstar Games Social Club compatability. Also, many characters, including Wu Lee have fruitcomputers.com email accounts.

Grand Theft Auto V

The company mentains its popularity during the events of Grand Theft Auto V, with the launch of the second generation iFruit.

Corporate identity

The logo bears a resemblance to the male genitals, due to Rockstar's adult humour. The logo's former color scheme also parodies the Microsoft Windows logo color scheme (with the exception of red being changed to orange). As of 2009, the color scheme has been replaced with silver. Alternate logos also include "Fruit" written to the right of the original logos.
