Apple blasts away at Microsoft’s Windows Vista in new ‘Get a Mac’ ads

Apple today debuted three new “Get a Mac” ads on their website (not the ad we featured earlier today, which we are calling “Drivers,” which has not yet made its appearance on Apple’s website.)

Two of the three new ads take dead aim at Microsoft’s Windows Vista and the third features an Apple Retail Store “Mac Genius.”

  1. “Smell the Mac desperation. Vista installed base already exceeds Apple’s entire installed base.”

    Ford sold more Mustangs last year than Ferrari has sold of any model for a decade.

    What’s your point??

  2. Don’t forget, Reality, if installed base = true quality, McDonald’s makes the finest hamburger in the world.

    The truth is Mickey D and MicroSloth have more in common than one might think, and that is . . . THEY”RE CHEAP AND ON EVERY CORNER.

    Long live underestimating the taste (and needs) of us, the American public. Sell it cheap and we will come!

  3. Even I know that Windows=Windows=Windows. Vista, 98, ME, it’s all the same. It’s the business model that “sold” Vista to the world. Just because it replaces something new doesn’t mean it’s better.

    New diapers replace old. In such a case, change is good. But, in the end (no pun intended), it’s still a diaper– fancy velcro or pin. It’s smelly. Low tech. Useful to a degree. And not the sort of thing you’d give as a gift, unless of course, you have issues.

    Hey Reality, maybe that’s what you smell. Wanna’ gift? ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”cheese” style=”border:0;” />

  4. Reality,

    And now for some actual reality:

    Operating System Market Share for April 2007:
    Mac OS- 6.21%
    Windows Vista – 3.02%

    Via: Net Applications

    Don’t worry. Even though the piece of shit isn’t yet even halfway to Mac, there are more than enough mouth-breathers to take it to #1 soon enough. Ahh, the pride you must feel.

  5. “Ford sold more Mustangs last year than Ferrari has sold of any model for a decade.”

    That would have some relevance if the Mac were a Ferrari like machine. A better analogy is that the Mac is a Chevy Camaro and the Windows machine a Ford Mustang.

  6. “Operating System Market Share for April 2007:
    Mac OS- 6.21%
    Windows Vista – 3.02%”

    Net applications is not know for their accuracy.

    But even using you statistics, Vista has already exceeded in a few months all Intel Macs ever sold, and is edging up on all PowerPC Macs ever sold.

    As I said, desperation.
