    It's just sad to see the big MS falling to such vial and childish advertising tactics.

    side note: WTF is but with IPTF's code tags??? it doesn't wrap the text in firefox 3, each sentence is infinitely long until you press enter, it's really annoying. EDIT: manram changed it to qoute tags, so don't say my browser sucks

    Yea, I know. Not sure what's up. I accidently put it in Code instead of a Quote.

    Fixed.

    doesn't matter if it's a childish advertisement. I'd say 80% of all the people are more than happy with a PC, and it's cheaper too.

    That video clip is just stating the truth. Macs are more expensive than PCs.
    Most people can do everything they want on a PC and they are happy with it.

    Is mac hardware of software? There are many neat laptops out there and the newest Windows 7 OS isn't bad at all.

    Yea, but Macs give you more for the price. WTF does a PC do for that Lauren girl? Nothing. Well I should say that, maybe some word docs, and to surf the web. That's about it.

    If a company, rather than say why there product is better, would rather say that the competition is overpriced is steeped to a very low level. And in this add, we can clearly see that microsoft is saying "mac's are better, but are more expensive" a la the line "i'm not cool enough for a mac"

    And all those Mac ads weren't a bit childish?

    yes, i never liked the mac ads, they where funny, but they spent too much time saying windows is bad, rather than saying mac is good
