Hell hath frozen over: PC Magazine launches 17-inch Apple MacBook Pro giveaway

There was a time when if someone had told us that PC Magazine was holding a notebook computer giveaway for an Apple Mac, we probably would’ve stared at them while wondering what (and how much) they’d been drinking.

Well, times have certainly changed:

Apple’s new MacBook Pro is ideal for creative professionals looking for a feature-rich system with plenty of screen real estate. The MacBook Pro is the lightest 17-inch notebook available! Features include an excellent software suite, an extra USB port and an iSight camera!
