Wow....why don't they just post a video of that freakin 4-year-old and have her dance around singing "PC PC la la la la la..."
interesting. I wonder if it will get people thinking about it/
Who wants a Zune anyway
If the 100 energy drinks are included in the box... I think I might need to switch back... . But the pocket lint... oh so tempting...
These advertisements arn't going to sway any pre-existing mac users, but will make all the PC fan boys dance around in joy. I guess that they're mainly aimed at those contemplating the switch who haven't realised that you can't just compare hardware specs when making this type of decision.
The ads is kind of amusing and true in a way.
Of course the ads aren't going to be truthful on why Apple's computers are more expensive. Everyone does that. See: the I'm a Mac, I'm a PC ads. While their jabs at PCs are on the surface true, there's many not-quite-true below the surface, just like this ad.
It's way better than Microsoft's I'm a PC ads, now those are stupid.
windows is for losers
Ms after Apple in new price ad
it's all over the internets. of course M$ is not as cool as macs are.
OP, why are you still looking at banner ads? They have software that removes those you know.
A little more like it:

No, Lauren, you're not cool enough.
funny how she goes to apple first... tee hee
Nobody ever said Apple is perfect. It's not like I've never Photoshopped their stuff for similar effect

Yes i would still got to the left side!
Well microsoft claim that they found all these people on craigslist.
So let me get this right.
Microsoft are comparing Apple Macs to sturdy and reliable items which have been around for years and always work such as paper clips and matches, and this is suppose to be a bad thing?
Even pocket lint is dependable. It never fails to be there. Though I guess Microsoft can counter that argument with their blue screen of death, it too never fails to be there.
Nice work Microsoft.
This thread may also interest you.
I think the ads are only reflecting the mindset of a lot of standard consumers out there: "Macs are cool, but I can't afford them." If anything, these ads are only going to pander to people who are already purchasing PCs because the Mac equivalent is too expensive. Hey, I'm one of those people. I used to have a MacBook, then sold it to purchase both a gaming PC and a netbook. I recently switched the netbook for a PowerBook G4, but I'm still not out-of-pocket any more than I the amount I paid for the MacBook (a whopping $1400).
So I wouldn't knock the ads for being stupid, just for being a bit unfocused. They're not going to get many Mac users to switch to PC, I don't think. Only solidify the PCs-are-more-affordable-and-Macs-aren't-for-me mentality that a lot of people have.
The reply to that ad would be a screen shot of Leopard and a screen shot of Windows.
Love those banner ads! Very cool
They might convince anybody on the fence not to switch, which I guess is the intention. It probably won't convince a Mac user to switch back, as they know the extra value in a Mac that those ads don't acknowledge.
2.26 Core 2 Lenovo vs. 2.66 Core 2 Macbook Pro
Guess what Microsoft, computers with higher specs cost more.
Nice idea though.
Apple price bashing ad on CNN.
I just caught this ad on CNN.com comparing Mac vs PC pricing and what you get... it's kind of humorous even if it doesn't tell the whole story.
I'm confused, why don't they include 3-5 years of antivirus subscriptions on the PC side?
Enjoy using your higher specs to.....wait what can you actually do on a Mac?
I dunno, I hate these ads and I hate all of your fanboism. Macs have a purpose and Windows do, and NO Windows doesn't always bluescreen, I ran my Vista install for 3 months without a bluescreen or even a driver lockup, 3-4 hours of use a day. Both sides have to stop the f**king ********.
