'PC' From Mac Ads Gets Personal Trainer

Apple's Mac and PC commercials always manage to arouse the fanboy camps, and the latest isn't that different. The standout in this latest ad is that PC and Mac are joined by Robert Loggia, who plays a personal trainer for PC.

Trying to whip him into shape, the trainer constantly shouts at PC saying that Macs have been ranked by PC Mag at the top for customer satisfaction and reliability. Obviously, it wouldn't be a "Get a Mac" ad without some punch line at the end, so just check out the video below:

    Apple no.1 in customer satisfaction?

    Well you can't argue Macs are pretty, and have a pretty OS, but I don't think Apple customers can really appreciate a nice hand build rig with cherry picked components... (because I don't think they can build one).

    The Mac ads are entertaining, but they don't say anything about actual performance... the message is that PCs suck. How about some positive advertising, Apple?

    Last I checked, I believe Asus had better reliability and customer support than Apple did, although I may be wrong.

    In any case, these ads are just getting sad, I would have liked it better if it went..

    apple is stupid and so are their ad campaigns. macs are great if you're a noob and/or dont care about being able to do much besides type poetry and use photoshop.

    PCs aren't just manufactured by one company, and the best ones, as a previous commenter said, are custom-made to suit the needs of the user. Not sure how they can compare customer service of one company (apple) against PCs in general, sounds like an apples to oranges comparison if i've ever heard one. People that complain about PCs (especially the type of complaints these ads have always focused on) are idiots who dont know how to properly maintain a system or who don't want to put the slight effort into learning. They'd rather just throw more money at apple and be handed a dumbed-down machine.

    Yes you can hand pick your compnents with a PC, but you also get lots of viruses and Malware which i haven't seen yet on my Imac. So far mac is my champion.
