What you need to know

  • A leaked Microsoft advertisement features a man named Mac Book.
  • The ad compares the Surface Laptop 2 and the Mac Book.
  • The commercial highlights several areas in which the Surface Laptop 2 beats the MacBook.

A leaked advertisement for the Surface Laptop 2 features a man named Mac Book comparing the Surface Laptop 2 and the MacBook. The commercial is tongue-in-cheek and reminiscent of a Taco Bell advertisement in which Taco Bell hired several people named Ronald McDonald to say they liked Taco Bell. The Microsoft commercial was leaked by Twitter user WalkingCat.

The ad compares the Surface Laptop 2 to the MacBook in regards to battery life, speed, and touch screen. As you'd expect, the commercial highlights areas in which the Surface Laptop 2 beats the MacBook.

It's worth pointing out that the fine print in the commercial says that the comparison is against the MacBook Air.

  • Those Thunderbolt 3 ports though...
  • I would worry about you polishing W10 which is an absolute abomination instead of criticizing your competitors.
  • A wild Apple Stan appeared!
  • A) That is nothing more than opinion and therefore irrelevant
    B) It's not a one or other thing. Marketing and design/development are two separate divisions, so you're statement is completely irrelevant.
  • We get it, you're an old person who has trouble using computers.
  • Or you can do both
  • Ad is an ad. Whoever trust ads.
  • Kinda petty. One of the things I like about Apple commercials is that they focus on their product without "taking a jab" at anyone.
    Also, Microsoft has bad commercials since I started using Windows Phone. Incredible...
  • Lmao you probably weren't born when Apple was taking jabs at Windows last decade trying to sell Macs
  • Luckily, they're in the past.
  • Haha nice try. Just look up old apple ads, they definitely take jabs at others.
  • "Old" being the key word here.
  • Is not a leaked maybe anymore. It's on MS's Surface page. https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co...
  • These are perhaps the funniest tech commercials ever produced. Serves Apple right. Although, I will say, I miss Steve. So... rather... serves Tim Cook's apple right. The once great company has lost its way. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
  • I should change my name to Surface Book and contact Apple...
