I was watching tv and saw a HP ad and it got me wondering... how many of the commercials for PC systems and such are created on a Mac? I think it would be kind of funny is all!

It's even funnier when it's an advertisement for PC software, shown ON a mac.. then stated that it only runs on PC's.

Bill Gates uses a MacBook Pro. And if you watch some of the PC Commercials you can actually hear that they use Apple Loops sometimes. I got a video on YouTube emailed to me the other day, and it was Bill Gates saying Mac was better than PC, although I'm not too sure if it's true or not.

I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to find if you searched around a bit.

I love the Windows Vista commercials. I LOL every time i see them.
"Oh yeah I'm definitely going to pick this up!"
"It's so easy to use!"
.....
Uuuuuhhhhh...NO... Not at ALL.

Yes my name is Jaguar.
No, it is not a joke.
I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

Windows Vista was a massive fail. Apple was going: YES! MORE COMMERCIALS MAKING FUN OF VISTA!

Anyone who uses Windows is doomed unless they use it for word processing (ROFL)

vista is actually a perfectly capable operating system, assuming you have the proper hardware. The problem is that many companies were trying to throw Vista on a POS hp with a celeron processor or c2d 1.5 ghz.

Vista will run fine on any decently configured current machine....

My friend has a Vista laptop, and nothing works on it plus it's not compatible with everything.

A couple months back, I bought a Brand New HP laptop, only because I've never owned a PC. Well, long story short, couldn't stand Vista, and couldn't stand how anything worked!! So I sold it after a week.

My favourite for that one is BBC iPlayer - they show a Macbook running the iPlayer software (Windows only), and have changed the "Macbook" on the bezel to say "bbc.co.uk/iplayer".
