I f**king hate their stupid commercials. They don't do anything to advertise what they're selling. All they ever do is bash pc.

This is true. They are the most passive aggressive ads ever.

Seriously, Mac ads must be done by the same people who do political campaigns.


"PC says that Windows 7 is free of problem. Oh really, PC? When Vista came out, PC promised the same thing; THEY LIED! Do you really trust PC now? Here's a B-actor in casual clothes who talks condescendingly towards a man in a business suit. Vote Mac."

Hehe, Yeah I was just telling my wife this the other day, Microsoft is doing it now too.

All they do is run commercials bashing each other rather rather then exploring the software/hardware they are selling.

Apple is worse by far.

The funny thing is, it's made Windows do the same thing with their ads.

I was thinking the exact samething. The PC dude says that Windows 7 is out and is going to be better that Vista. Then the Mac dude says hmm where have I heard that before. It then goes back to when PC said Vista is better than XP, XP better than ME, etc.

I mean really wtf. Windows 7 has recieved nothing buy positive feedback. And the only thing about Vista is that it needs alot of memory. Thats it. Windows XP is widely considered the best operating system ever. Windows 7 might be even better. And lets be real, ANY Windows operating system was better than ME, so them flashing back to when PC said "XP is going to be better than ME" is complete and utter bullsh*t. Thats saying the best OP ever really wasnt beter than the worst OP ever.

Mac really failed with this latest commercial.

All I know is for the last 3 years I've had a Mac and it has never had any problems. When I used a PC growing up with XP, I think it froze like 56 times. I never used Vista much so I have nothing to say about that. And I've heard Windows 7 is great.

Can you imagine if every company did this kind of advertising? I'd have to mute commercials every time.

We have two macbook pros and a new mac pro desktop in the house, as well as two Toshiba laptops and my desktop PC rig. Guess which of these had to be taken back to get fixed on more than one occasion?

I have enjoyed laughing at them try and battle the Windows 7 hype. It's been out for a week and they've already got multiple commercials bashing it without any facts. All they did was create some fake flashbacks for the last one.
