    Not really. Microsoft doesn't make the ads, they hire an outside firm to do it. Of course to the majority of people that will see the ads this isn't what they think about.

    ^^ Yes, really. The OP is simply saying the ads are made on Macintosh.

    It's no surprise, really, but kind of ironic and delightful in a way.

    Read post #3.

    If you still don't get it, look under "irony" in any dictionary. Then look at what the Laptop Hunter ads say about Apple, etc. Hopefully you'll be able to connect the dots.

    What do they say about Apple?


    Oh yeah, that their computers are expensive.

    Sure, it's slightly ironic, but it's not newsworthy. A lot of commercials are made on Macs, why can't these be too? :confused:

    Yes, I know the OP was saying (well, linking to a story that I had already seen) that the ads were made on Macs. What does this have to do with anything? I don't find it ironic at all, considering video editing is, and has been for a long time, a Mac-dominated industry.

    Not really ironic even, no one in any of the commercials is 'looking for a computer to create television commercials on.'
