Microsoft has launched a new Mac vs PC site.
The new site, “Do the Math“, launched in Canada recently and aims to compare Mac based computers to several PC counterparts. Microsoft has put together comparison charts for the following Macs:
- MacBook 13
- MacBook Air 11
- MacBook Air 13
- MacBook pro 13
- MacBook Pro 15
- MacBook Pro 17
- iMac 25.1
- iMac 27
The comparisons feature Samsung, HP, ASUS, Sony, Dell, Acer and Toshiba machines. Most of the machine comparisons feature the same or better configurations to their Mac counterparts. “Surf the web or surf Hawaii,” says Microsoft. “The choice is yours. When you a buy a PC this summer, you’ll have tons of cash left over to spend on other things.”
Microsoft has previously produced a number of TV commercials featuring Mac cost comparisons. The software giant launched a series of “Laptop hunter” commercials in early 2009. The adverts kick started the successful “I’m a PC” campaign that Microsoft went on to use for its Windows 7 adverts.
