I’m a Microsoft/PC Commercials Are Starting To Piss Me Off

Posted by mikenopolis on March 27, 2009

They are kinda stealing the Mac’s “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” commercials. They are stupid….why? They have little children doing stupid shit on their PCs. I as a consumer am not going to buy a computer because a little kid was able to make a slideshow or print a panoramic picture of her room.

What made me blog this was the following commercial…a girl is looking for a sub $1000 17″ notebook. In the end she got an HP for $699.99+tax, roughly $750. I do have to agree with people that Apple products are on the pricier side. But they are well built machines that can last a long time and still be very dependable. Personally I have never had much trouble with my Windows machines, not even my Vista (but then again its 64-bit). All I’m saying is that you can give a mac to your grandmother out of the box and she can’t destroy it (not talking about physically). Here’s an article discussing the video and guess what? He’s siding with me, even as a PC user.

Anyway I digress, here’s the video…She’s just poor, if she had the money and had ever used a mac in her life, she’d be all over the 17″ Mac Pro….I miss my old 17″ Powerbook G4

    i hate the pc commercials! yes i agree they did steal the “i’m a mac, i’m a pc” thing. these commercials also fail to mention how much of a piece of crap a pc is. yeah apple is a little pricey, but your paying for something that truly will last forever!! my friend just bought a new pc and its already going for repairs, compared to the numerous blueberry imacs i have, and the old g3 i have. i also have a very nice emac and 17″ imac and all of these work so much better than any pc i have ever used!! (yay macs)

      There isn’t much I can do on a PC that I can’t do with a Mac. Out of the box, a Mac is “friendlier” but with more software installed, a PC is a great machine. People who “break” their computers are morons to begin with. As mentioned I’ve never had problems with PCs and definitely not a Mac. I’m just saying that the little kid in the commercial was a stupid sales pitch that would only work on idiots
