AFAIK it wasn't the same CPU Fred, I do believe the Apple II and the Atari 8-Bit series used non CBM produced 6502's made by a number of vendors like Harris, Rockwell and who knows how many other's

The CPU's used in the CBM 8-bits were actually manufactured by a division of CBM and were more like a super version of the 6502 and then the C128's used the 8510, another suped up version of the older 6502 CPU. The nice thing however is that CBM made these CPU's backward compatible with 6502 ML so code would run properly
