Windows 7 “Advertisment” : Surf the web or surf Hawaii

I haven’t laughed that much for a long time!

Microsoft, in an effort to convince the users to buy a PC (running Windows 7) over a Mac, launched the following advertisement where it compares several Macs with Windows 7 based PCs.

In principal, I agree with the concept; why paying so much money for a Mac? But:

  • Surf the web or surf Hawaii??? Using a Windows PC, aren’t you supposed to be able to surf the web also :-D? Maybe say “Surf the web, surf Hawaii, or both”!
  • They could use PCs with the same (or more similar) CPU with the respective Mac in order to be more convincing..

Anyway, Microsoft is fun.. and desperate (??). Do the math.

Windows from version 1 to version 7..

Windows 1

Windows 1

In a worth to see video, created by Andrew Tait, the installation/update and compatibility of Windows from version 1 to 7 is explored. The installation were done using VMWare and the outcome was that Microsoft actually did a very good job on keeping the systems compatible! Just watch it!
