Right. They were. And then they released PowerPC-based desktops, and called them PowerMacs. At which point you had: desktop: PowerMac portable: PowerBook ... and both became forever linked to the PowerPC name. Origin, folks, does not exempt one from evolution or history. Regardless of how it started, Power evolved as a name to imply a link to the PowerPC.
