I was purusing You Tube for some videos for a computer project I'm working on...and I came across a nice compilation of some of the "Mac vs. PC" advertisments from a while back...and wanted to share with you guys.

I always loved these videos (funny as heck)!:) Of course you have to be an Apple fan of sorts to enjoy/appreciate them the most. I'm thinking the hard-core Windows folks wouldn't like them so much!;)

So if you're having a rough day (or not)...and need a little humor to bring a smile to your face...please give them a view. Enjoy!:)

I always liked those ads. I also liked the ads Apple did years ago for the Power
book line. I think the tag line was "What's on your PowerBook"? It showed users from several backgrounds and asked what they had on their PowerBook.

Liked the ads because I've always thought it better tp sell by emphasizing your positives.

Interesting also (if you can find them) to see the UK version of those ADs. They used different actors, which I found a bit jarring at first. I watched a number of them a few years back, will post a link if I run accross them,

those commercials were not that funny, but they did change the way people thought of macs and added a much needed personality apple did not have then.

Even funnier is the PC addicts comments! Of course they were funny ads.

"hard-core Windows" fans? Is that still a thing? I thought they faded away after Vista and slowly got replaced by Google/Android fans. Now a days, I think you are just a Windows "user" but it's not anything you get excited over.
