    It's not as clever as I'd hope Apple would make it, but a decent response to those Laptop Hunter ads.

    Surprise was funny. The other one was just plain boring.

    Slightly off topic, but I saw an HP ad a day or so ago where a girl is holding a laptop and going over all the benefits of it. The catch? Even though there was no face and the voice sounded different, she claimed to be "Lauren" and she was "still a PC." Already, the MS ads have jumped the shark. lol

    I too think surprise takes this one.

    Just today I had to help someone with a windows. It was rather, well, slow and painful for me. Ugh! I have since returned home and am now typing on my mac and staring at my cinema display. :D

    Surprise wasn't funny. The other one was just plain better.

    Not their best ad, but 'Surprise' wasn't too bad. Still not nearly as cleaver as some of their previous ads. I thought they usually released their ads in 3's?

    Any former PC users NOT like Macs?

    Has anyone ever met a PC user that switched to a Mac and didn't like it? I haven't. All of these PC users that dog on Macs probably haven't even tried a Mac. They just put up with the crappy user experience that PCs offer and assume that all computers are the same. Apple should run a campaign with interviews with former PC users. The whole pissing match gets a bit annoying, really. I'm a lifelong Mac user and, yes, a fanboy. But, it's crazy to me how many PC users dog on Macs without even trying them. I've used both and have stuck with the one that I prefer most. At least try both before you defend Windows so much, people!

    The most over-played bit in advertising history.

    Apple needs some new material desperately.

    These ads are getting tired...

    The ads will eventually start inciting hackers to start taking advantage of exploits in the Mac.

    I saw that one too! Defiantly not Lauren. That ad makes no sense at all. Check our when Lauren goes into the Apple store at second 13. The guy wearing black is in the same shot when she is leaving around second 15. CLEARLY did not have time to look at ANY of the Macs to determine their prices. . . BUT totally unscripted.

    I agree with this. I have known some die-hard Windows users that used to ridicule me over using Macs and now some of them are die-hard Mac users. Once people USE Macs — and using them for a week or less doesn't count — they stay. Windows offers 0 benefits and Quicklook is the best thing ever! :D

    Agreed, they are getting increasingly mean spirited and pretentious as well.

    Instead of all this "Mac's just work" stuff, why don't they start talking 8 hour batteries and aluminum bodies?

    I like the top of the line one.

    But the ads are getting a bit old. And with Windows 7 not being to terribly bad I suppose they'll have to find something new to talk about.
