Microsoft Gets Another Lauren to Buy a PC

Microsoft Gets Another Lauren to Buy a PC

Posted May 15, 2009 at 10:54am by iClarified · 4693 views
Microsoft has released the fifth laptop hunter ad in which Lauren and mom go searching for a PC for her to take to law school.

She says she needs a laptop with speed and battery life for less than $1700. They choose a Dell XPS 13a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, and a $899 price tag.

I don't understand why anyone with 1,700 free dollars would choose a 900 dollar computer (Mac or PC) but you can watch the ad yourself below...

Well, you do not understand why anyone with 1700 free dollars would choose a 900 dollar computer. Well, we could suppose you did not understand the ad. Of course you did, she found what she was looking for in a notebook costing less. But, of course, you had to comment like all apple fanboys. Get a life!

I JUST GOT A NEW MACBOOK UNIBODY FOR $1100 AND AFTER HAVING A $3000 LAPTOP THE SONY TZ SERIES WITH SSD DRIVE ON IT. I THO THAT LASPTOP WAS FAST AND RELIABLE BUT ONE I GOT MY MAC I DONT THINK ILL EVER BUY LAPTOP IF ITS NOT MAC. WHILE MY WINDOWS VISTA LAPTOP USED TO TAKE 5 MIN TO LOAD MY MAC ONLY TAKES LESS THAN A MINUTE. SO WITH 1700 U CAN BUY A REALLY NICE MAC SET UP .

Another fanboy that did not understand what we are talking about. First, let me teach you something, even macs have a key we usually call caps lock. Same effect on macs too. Second, we are not discussing you can not find an excellent mac at other price, we are talking about the ridiculous commentary why choose a 900 notebook. Third, I have a mac and a windows machine (desktop and notebook), both are very good. I am not a pc or mac fanboy, only use the most useful tech to my life. Sorry victor, let me use your words too: get a life, fanboy 2.

I think you guys are misunderstanding the commentary. It has nothing to do with Macs versus PCs. This is supposedly a realistic commercial and Lauren wasn't aware that she was being filmed for a Microsoft ad. Do you know anyone in their right mind that if told they would be reimbursed for a computer up to 1700 dollars who would buy a 900 dollar one and forfeit the extra 800 bucks? Thats like winning 1700 bucks in the lottery and saying no I only want 900. Thanks.
