That review probably came just after Intel initially launched PCI-Express. The 915/925 chipsets were very disappointing. You'd be very hard pressed to find a recent PC review that claims AGP to be a better standard than PCI Express. While PCIe is a nice feature to have for upgrades, it is not a requirement. Apple systems tend stay with 'proven' technology more so than the 'latest & greatest.' The next couple revisions of graphics cards are going to have an AGP varient, so it's nothing to worry about.
