Latest Surface Pro 4 ad pokes fun at the MacBook and its lack of pen support

Microsoft continues to take humorous jabs at Apple's MacBooks in its latest TV commercial for the Surface Pro 4. The ad shows how the 2-in-1 tablet supports pens on its display while the MacBook does not.

The new 30-second ad, as posted on YouTube also points out the tablet can detach from its optional Type Cover, which again the MacBook is unable to do. It's not quite as funny as the earlier "cat wearing a hat" ad but it does get its point across that Microsoft sees the Surface Pro 4 as more of a laptop than a tablet with an optional keyboard.

What do you think of these new Surface Pro 4 ads and their humorous slams at the MacBook? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
