Microsoft Drops Yet Another Laptop Ad

Here we go again with this nonsense from Microsoft.

This time we have “Sheila” (whom is likely an actor much like “Lauren”), who wants to do some video editing. She has $2000 to spend and somehow the MacBook Pro isn’t part of the discussion because it only has 2GB of RAM. She chooses a HP HDX 16t which comes with 4GB of RAM. Of course Microsoft has created this commercial to compare the HP box to the base MacBook Pro (as all the other ones come with 4GB of RAM), and they steer clear of the fact that the Mac is a better value as BusinessWeek has argued. But I forget that this is a Microsoft ad. Why should they let facts get in the way of a good argument?

Here’s the video. Please post a comment with your thoughts:
