MAC VS. PC: THE BATTLE RAGES ON

By in advertising, commercial, computer, technology

It has become almost cult-ish the way in which people devote to computer platforms. Nearly a year ago, I converted to a Mac user. That’s not to say I don’t use both comfortably, but if I have a choice…it’s Mac hands down. Unless you’re a programmer, I don’t see why you’d go any other route. I was asked yesterday why I prefer Mac over PC and my answer was “it just works better.” I was shot back with “well…that’s your opinion.” No. It’s the truth.

Microsoft spends millions on advertising a year just like Mac does, but the difference is in the intelligence of the advertising and the fact that Mac also invests in making their products work. It’s not just about bashing PC, it’s about educating the consumer about the competition’s weaknesses. Watch the commercials below to see what I mean.

Yes PC, lots of people still use you…but there was not a single point in that whole commercial that made a valid argument as to why.
