“Oh dear. Just when we thought Microsoft might have gotten over its misleading Surface tablet ads attacking the iPad (and iPad mini), it has run three new ones, each attacking the MacBook Air,” Ben Lovejoy writes for 9to5Mac.

“Microsoft’s decision to go on the offensive is perhaps understandable: while Apple can run a MacBook Air ad simply observing that it’s “the notebook people love,” poor sales of the Surface despite high marketing costs have so far resulted in Microsoft losing $1.7B on the device,” Lovejoy writes. “The ads claim the Surface is as powerful as a MacBook Air while championing the the Surface’s touchscreen, pen and detachable keyboard that allow it to be both a tablet and a laptop – the very ‘worst of both worlds’ experience that resulted in such poor reviews.”
