Ads War : Mac VS Pc

There is heated response about my last post about Ads War. Hence, I decided to continue digging in this area. And here is our today’s topic: the ads war between mac and pc.

The beginning word:

I have to say, I am pc. Even though I am working in designing field (actually, I am a flash developer), and seems most people working in this industry are crazy about mac. Just not me! (I love my decent Sony laptop, it is pretty, powerful and cheap.) I am not against people who like mac, just hate to hear someone said, “pc is so difficult to use, I even don’t know how to copy and paste”. And I heard that conversation more than once. That is really ridiculous to me.

The ads between mac and pc come trace back long time ago. And I am not going to list all their commercials. This poster is all about the latest round, initiated by Pc’s “laptop hunter” and responded by mac just yesterday.

I am pc – laptop hunter

1. laptop hunters $1500 – Lisa and Jackson get a SONY VAIO with just $1500 to spend.



2. laptop hunters $1000 – Lauren gets an HP Pavilion

3. Laptop Hunters $1500 – Giampaolo gets an HP HDX

4. Laptop Hunters: Homeless Frank


I am mac

Biohazard Suit – pc’s virus problem

Time Traveler – pc’s freeze problem

Stacks – pc’s searching problem

Legal Copy – pc’s lengthy Legal Copy


And here is three pictures people made to compare pc and mac from appearance, software and usability.

I have to say, it is not so true. As far as I know, Dell already has it “all in one design desktop”.

  1. This is with reference to a mac book I purchased one and a half years ago. I was a PC person for 10 years before being converted to a mac person a years & half ago when I purchased my first Macbook. I regret the day. Not only during the first year was there a problem with the plastic of the keyboard breaking near the magnet automatically, but just like an average PC the motherboard has conked off in a year & a half’s time. Hard core mac people (My professor’s at the Uni) raved to me about the quality of the product and how it can last for at least 3-4 years. I regret to say now mac’s have just become poor quality money making machine.
    I now have to pay Rs.500 (5GBP – 10USD) per 10GB to get back my own data for no fault of mine. If only I had a PC, my local vendor would have removed the hard drive and given it me to download my own data. I have lost all my money on the hardware /data (one and a half years of hard work) / Money I spent on buying all the legal software. I definitely don’t think I will recommend anyone to shift from PC to mac.

    Now I will incur around Rs 25000 (250 GBP- 500USD) to get it repaired which alternatively I could have paid beforehand by buying the I care package.

    P.S. I don’t even understand on your website where to send this email. Please make sure to read it on all the blogs of mac & PC wars. Chain emails and any other way I can tell the world.
