PC World Wintel boxes suffer from Mac envy
Even the Vista-friendly ones
UK computer superstore chain PC World clearly thinks its customers are suffering on the sly from Mac envy. How else can we explain how the pictures of PCs on its online store and in its catalogues all show Mac OS X screenshots?
Register Hardware reader Matt Kyte sent us a pic he took of a PC World catalogue page. On offer, a Packard Bell desktop and a Toshiba notebook. Both machines' screens clearly shown with Mac OS X browser Safari - ironically being used to display Microsoft's Windows Vista website.
But that's not all. PC World's website is replete with hundreds of desktop and notebook PCs all with Mac OS X's Jaguar Aqua Blue desktop wallpaper on display.
None of the Macs the retailer offers sport Windows Vista on their screens, so PC World hasn't got itself completely in a twist.
