New Microsoft Ad Targets Price of Apple Computers

The advertising war between Microsoft and Apple continues. The newest campaign from Microsoft points out what everyone already knows, Macs cost more than PCs. In this particular commercial, a camera crew follows around Lauren, who is looking for a laptop to fit her needs. The first stop is the Apple Store where the only computer in her price range has a 13-inch screen; the only problem is that she wants a 17-inch screen. After a trip to another store, she settles on an HP that fits all of her requirements for only $700. This commercial should help Microsoft at a time when most people are trying to cut spending across the board.
