TMO Announcement - System Shootouts Get Dedicated Web Site

by , 11:00 AM EDT, May 19th, 2004

We are both happy and sad to announce that Charles Gaba is taking his System Shootouts to their own Web site, once again. Happy, because Charles will be able to spend more time and energy on the Shootouts, and sad because we enjoyed hosting them at TMO.

The System Shootouts are point-by-point comparisons between Apple's systems and competing Wintel machines, with the comparison based on systems that ship in the same price range. Charles began the series years ago at, but brought them to TMO last year.

The new home for the System Shootouts can be found at the very appropriate, and with their own dedicated site, we can expect to see more timely updates. Charles has launched the new site with full updates for Apple's laptop line, Apple's Educational Desktop line, and two different consumer desktop shootouts.

Charles has also launched a mailing list for those wanting to be notified when a new shootout had been posted. You can find more information on the e-mail list at the Web site.

TMO is still hosting the shootouts that we originally published, and we wish Charles and the very best of luck!
