    Seem kinda blah to me this time around. The whole Mac/PC campaign has been so parodied that the new ads seem like parodies themselves.

    Where's Ellen Feiss when you need her?

    The MagSafe one is terrific - a very, very simple feature that the mainstream consumer is probably unaware of.

    These new three ads just seem a bit more fun and relaxed - not as smug and arrogant as some of the other ones.

    They spyware one is great.

    Apple only updates the front page only so often. So either they won't update for a nother few weeks (when new updates are out) or this has been posted so intime for new updates (withen the next few days). I'm not sure which one I think is mor accurate.

    But, they wouldn't put these up if there was an update tomorrow.

    This is a good point - basically, we know that if the Macbook is updated soon, it won't come with a case redesign! To be sure, though, the Macbook is selling so well as it is I don't think Apple feels much pressure to update it anytime soon...

    The Macbook Pro, on the other hand...;)

    These are pretty cool.

    But why does Justin Long look... different?

    Like it's not him or something.

    The spyware one amuses me.

    Definitely because of his long hair...and he is definitely more stylish since the release of his latest movie "Accepted," which was very very good by the way!

    Anyway...I think these new series of commercials are a dead give away of new products to come. (being a bit optimistic here:D but definitely not far out there)

    *yawn*

    the only appealing part was the pop sound at the end of the accident one. It's a nice feature and that little gives it some character. Beyond that I still don't see the appeal of these ads.

    then again, I'm not the target audience. I'm already sold

    I'm not the biggest fan of the PC/Mac commercials but the "field of wheat" bit was top notch!

    I'd like to see a remake of "Lemmings", myself.

    Or "Crowd Control", featuring the crashy Vista beta. :cool:

    I really don't think the general public is very aware of the parodies... only the hard-core internet geek crowd.

    They need to make one about Macs and PCs networking with each other, and then have Mac and PC go into a deep lip-lock.

    ROOF. That would be hot.

    (The spyware one made me think of that because they're leaning into each other. HAUT.)
