Hot on the heels of Microsoft’s Zune Pass versus iTunes commercial, are the new Get a Mac ads, which take a swipe at Microsoft’s Laptop Hunters series as well as customer support for PCs.
Apple has released three new commercials (which are available on its website here) and the most notable is the Laptop Hunters spoof where a Lauren-a-like is looking for a laptop with a big screen and a decent processor. PC orders the slow and small PCs (played by men in similarly drab suits) to leave and it looks like “Meagan” is finally whittling the group down to something that will work for her. That is, until she says she wants something that doesn’t crash all the time, doesn’t get viruses and cause a bunch of headaches in general. Shocker, everyone leaves bar Justin Long.
The other two ads play on the fact that Apple stores have Geniuses as well as the fact that PC’s get more viruses. Check out the ads on YouTube and let us know what you think.
