Windows98 PowerBook

It would seem, atleast according to the picture above, that Best Buy is now distributing PowerBooks with Windows 98 preinstalled.

It says on the product description page that Tiger is preinstalled…but I think that’s just a typo.

I’ve been waiting for Windows 98 to be available on PowerBooks for ages and my dream has finally come true.

    [...] I saw this story on the Apple Blog this morning. Seems someone in Best Buy’s marketing department neglected to do some research. Wow! An Apple PowerBook preloaded with Windows ‘98! Gosh, I don’t remember Steve Jobs mentioning anything about a “Windows ‘98″ PowerBook during his recent Macworld keynote [...]

  2. errr. aren’t we 2 months early for this? LOL

  3. I went to the link and it didn’t say anything about win 98. Could it be virtual PC.

    haha so apparantly best buy’s advertising/design department didn’t pay much attention before photoshopping that desktop image on there…not smart

  5. Based on my experiences with Best Buy staff this is the exact kind of thing I would expect.

  6. Yeah, an obvious error in their artwork department.

    I just had a big blow up with Bust Buy over a bunk TV they sold me. Their service is a joke.

  7. It’s aparent that they just used the image that they use for every computer (lazy buggers )

  8. I must say that is kinda funny. Especially now with the fact that people are trying to get windows to work on the new intel macs.

  9. Clearly a mistake–especially considering the 12″ product page properly shows an OS X screen. Only the 17″ has the incorrect Win98 screenshot.

  10. This is a typo. How does someone making a typo end up as the top story on your front page?
