Amazon's Best of 2007 Is Part Duh, Part Huh?

When you read Amazon's Best of 2007 sales, ratings and wishlist figures straight down the line, they look pretty plain, but when you compare, say, Bestselling with Most Loved, though, you learn some funny stuff. Although Apple's MacBook Pro notebook was the most favorably rated computer, Nokia's N800 Internet Tablet outsold it while the cute little Asus Eee PC was most wished for. Only Nintendo swept all slots in its category: the Wii was the bestselling, best reviewed and most wished for product, while Super Mario Galaxy was the most popular gift. Here's our breakdown, followed by the complete list for your perusal:
