    Default New Windows ad highlights fact that Microsoft makes affordable technology!

    In this new Microsoft Windows ad, when Lauren sees that only a 13 inch Mac is available at her budget of $1000, it makes her comment : 'I'm just not cool enough to be a Mac person'. The sarcasm is unmistakable.

    She finally walks out with a $699 Windows laptop, highlighting the fact that Microsoft makes affordable technology!

    touched a nerve is an understatement! I have never seen Macboys feel so insecure & insulted.
