PC World’s 100 Best Products of 2007 list features six from Apple

Apple StoreNot content with waiting for another 7 months and 10 days to elapse, PC World has published their list of “The 100 Best Products of 2007.”

We guess it’s really a list of “The 100 Best Products of 2007, So Far.” Therefore, products like Apple’s iPhone are not on the list, but iPhone is #1 atop PC World’s “Most Anticipated Products of the Year” list.

Numbers 1-3 are Google Apps Premier Edition, Intel Core 2 Duo, and Nintendo Wii respectively.

Apple hits the 2007 list six times:
9. Apple Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” (released April 29, 2005!)
11. Apple TV
26. Apple iPod (80GB) (released September 12, 2006!)
45. Apple iPod Nano (8GB) (released September 12, 2006!)
61. Apple iTunes
82. Apple MacBook Pro (released January 10, 2006!)

Notably absent from PC World’s list is Microsoft’s critically panned Windows Vista.

Microsoft does have four products on the list:
18. Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite
56. Microsoft Office 2007
75. SysInternals/Microsoft Process Explorer
91. Microsoft Windows Media Player 11

See the full list, including Parallels Desktop for Mac at #6, here.

  1. They should have done this list end of this year…like in November or December….which would logically make more sense, since its best products of “2007”. So what happens to the great products that get released in the next seven months? Wrong timing at its best here.
