Apple doesn't directly respond to most of the things rivals say about it and its products, but I guess Microsoft's ridiculous new ad campaign was too silly to go unanswered.
In one of the ads, Microsoft challenged Lauren to find a 17-inch notebook for less than US$1,000--and concludes "I'm just not cool enough to be a Mac person." Even with a larger budget, Giampolo opts for an HP laptop as well.
"Millions of people have switched to Mac because they love the security, stability and power that comes with world-class hardware and amazing software that just works, right out of the box," Apple spokesman Bill Evans, told Macworld.
Good point--why buy a computer that won't get things done?
