Changing Apple's mHz myth mission - the 1.6 GHz G5

Kelly McNeill writes: "If sources quoted in a recent report published on The Register are to be believed, then many consumers may end up even more confused about MHz than even before. The report suggest that Motorola is scheduled to start high-volume production of the company's upcoming G5 processor, in speeds ranging from 800 MHz on the low end to 1.6 GHz on the high, as soon as February 2002. If the speculative reports are true, Apple will have to market computers to a newly reeducated demographic that now believes MHz is unimportant. Apple's new computers will be significantly faster but almost identical in MHz to those PCs employing misleading MHz levels."
