Viewers complained that the advertising was misleading because the main claim was based on the results of limited tests in which the specification of the computers used was configured to give Apple the best results.

Due to the technical nature of the advertiser's response, the ITC asked the BACC to refer the complaints and the response to the BACC's expert. He found that the claim was not supported by independent reviews and that at best "the G5 was generally as fast as the best Intel-based workstations currently available".

Jag tycker det är roligt att Apples reklam stoppas, medans 99% av annan exakt likadan reklam ej gör det. Artikelförfattaren tar upp ett utmärkt exempel-- Intels Pentium 4-reklam som påstår att Pentium 4 gör internet snabbare. Mycket smart marknadsföringsdrag från Intels sida, men helt felaktigt. Riktigt sliskigt faktiskt!
