Microsoft has released a new commercial, stoking the fires of the ever lasting Mac vs PC debate.
The commercial is a comic poke at Apple’s lack of Blu-Ray support in OS X. Based on cardboard cutouts of Windows laptops and Mac laptops the commercial starts with the Windows 7 laptop displaying a Blu-Ray copy of Avatar. “This is so cool” pronounces the MacBook as Windows 7 explains that Blu-Ray is built-in.
Entitled “PC & Mac take a flight”, the commercial shows how PC & Mac stay entertained on a long flight together with the help of Blu-Ray on Windows 7 and Avatar. The commercial ends with a guidance message that assures viewers the film is rated “PC”. Microsoft has previously launched a “PC versus Mac” section of its Windows 7 comparison site to help consumers choose between the two.
Microsoft’s latest commercial follows on from a series of “Laptop hunter” commercials that the software giant launched 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.
Microsoft says no macs were used in the making of the video.
