    I've seen that on a couple of other websites too, I think that since Apple CPUs have been made by moto for so long people are just used to saying the "Motorola xxxx"

    Also, it's odd that PC Connection wants more than retail for them.

    C|Net does have trouble when things don't fit into neat categories.

    C|Net has always been a pro PC site. Do not forget Paul Allen owns C|Net. If you read the reviews of PowerBook 17" the comparison the way it is compared to a PC laptop is pathetic. When gigving the edxaple of battery life C|Net does the movie playing (DVD playing time) for the PowerBook and for the PC laptop does the word applcaition and use of office document. The links are given below:

    1. PowerBook Battery Life

    2. Dell Battery Life

    Considering most of Apple's products that have been reviewed recieved "editor's choice" awards I don't see why people think c|net is anti-Mac.

    They're just confused a lot. I don't think they get the PC details right most of the time either...or the electronics or the...

    It reminds me of the MacMall/PCMall magazines that advertise the G5 as the first 64 bit computer, flat out.

    As far as battery life. Yea, the new PC notebooks will beat out the 17". As far as them calling it a morotorla, well, they are just silly aren't they.
