    I still think it is hilarious that they would use anything that could be mistaken as an apple product to non-geeks.

    They are trying to change the windows image so drastically so they use a mac. It also doesn't fit with their "Be what's next" slogan. Maybe "Be what seems already successful". :D

    Don't get me wrong, not knocking Windows 8. I just find their choice in hardware funny.

    I just checked it again the link above and it plays fine for me :confused:

    Well, considering they're just selling an Operating System, an OS that also runs on Macs, it could well be a Mac. You think Microsoft cares if their OS is running on a Macbook? They don't make any less money from the sale.

    I fail to see why people still see it as Ironic or a fail when they see Windows running on a Mac, especially during that Microsoft presentation.

    To be fair i'm surprised they didn't use one of those "ultrabooks"

    That's not a mac, just look at the touchpad. My guess is, that its one of the HP knockoffs.

    Can you recognize a non apple?

    To be talking some smack it might be nice to at least be on target ...

    Wow, I almost fell off the chair laughing. Sounds like it's not clear as to the point of my first post. It was just that I found humor in they used something that looked like a Mac. Not to talk smack or however else it's been mis-interpreted. Just a friendly conversation.

    I think it is obvious that MS would never use a Mac in their ads.

    Ah well.
