Apple posts new ‘Get a Mac’ TV ad, new iPod ads

Apple debuted a new television ad for their “Get a Mac” campaign called “Surgery” in which John Hodgman’s “PC” prepares to upgrade to Microsoft’s Windows Vista.

Dressed in a hospital gown, “PC” tells Justin Long’s “Mac” that he “gets nervous” about such “major surgery.”

Apple also posted two new ads for iPod featuring “Flathead” by The Fratellis.

  1. Good ad.

    It’s true, upgrading to Vista will be a major deal for typical Windows users who have been running an XP box for a few years.

    Of course, typical Mac users who have been using the same computer for a few years might have an interesting time with Leopard, since it might not run ideally on a 1.25Ghz G4 iMac with 512MB RAM (typical Mac from 3 years ago).

    Leopard will probably run better than Vista on similarly aged hardware.
