New Get A Mac ads

Thinking that the theme is getting a little tired.  Time for a new campaign.

Agreed.

And they mention Windows so much more than they do OSX in the latest set!

Yeah, I agree.

There are a couple in the series that are funny - Security for example, but I don't like the ads in general.

PC is very likable, and to be honest I think I prefer him to Mac!! Mac seems dull and boring, whilst PC is funny and as I say, generally likable!

I think it's a pretty misguided campaign, so I'm looking forward to something else.

They're all funny and all, but it's just like mac is trying too hard, and not selling themselves, just pointed out every tiny little thing that pc does wrong. Poor pc... getting torn apart like that

The scary part is that I'm finding that the Mac guy actually dresses like me :P

For the most the campaign has failed as like the above posts, many people find "PC" the more likable of the two in the ads. Though i'm surprised that no one else has parodied them yet. (EG MS, Sony etc..)

Somebody has; Novell has the "Hi, I'm Linux" with an exceptionally good looking female.


If there was a person representing Linux in real life they would be a frankstein of miss placed parts placed in strange locations - in other words, a walking Van Gogh painting.

Or they might be an old man with a grey beard wearing a white coat and sandals.

A couple of new ads released, Misprint and Now what.
Misprint focus a little on the hardware suppliers than MS.
