I got the Thirtieth Comment... Ha ha ha ha ha............ Awesome. That's all I had to say. I'm just really really happy there aren't going to be any more sucky Mac Vs PC Commercials where the PC loses. We all know in real life PC wins every freaking time.

Mighty BOB!

Whatever, the ads are annoying and repetitive at this point.

now with macs and pc's more alike than different, isn't it time to make peace and join together against the real threat of consoles?

Name 5 console games that can be played on a mac? Yeah, I thought so.

Boot Camp software, dual boot a mac with a Mac OS and Windows.  

Yeah, there's the threat: Macs can run windows!  As for the list of 5 games... take your pick at any PC game that is also on a console.  You know, that list that is in reality to big to count.

Yeah, I thought so.

I'm a total MS fanboy, and I can tell you that I've loved those ads over the years. They did a terrific job of making fun of Windows, and I had a ton of laughs. I have no idea how accurate they were as it pertains to Macs, because I don't know much about Macs. But they were spot on for Windows. I always looked forward to the next round of ads as they were released. I don't know why they would want to stop now, there's no shortage of things to make fun of. I'm sure they could squeeze another couple of years out of them. It's true that Windows is full of headaches -- I love it in spite of its flaws, and that's not going to change anytime soon. I love my kids too, and they are far bigger pains in the arses than Windows!

As a Devils Advocate I will say those Ads were far better than the Microsoft Ads. I mean Microsoft should have been retaliative towards Apple in the same fashion as the Apple Commercials. Like I'm a PC and Mac just plain sucks.. See that would be funny. Or have the Mac guy take a healthy crap on the Mac Guy.. Very very funny. But MS ruined it. Or the PC guy could have gotten pissed off at the Mac guy and took out a baseball bat and beet the mac guy up with it. Or even a Taser.

 The PC would BEET the Mac guy? And do what? Stain his shirt all red?

Even Apple realized those commercials are just getting annoying. In any case, I think Apple will generally start to lose interest in heavily promoting its OS X based machines. Not nearly enough profit.

Why bother with traditional computers when the mobile market is so potentially lucrative? Steve Jobs' wet dream = the entire world on Apple mobile devices. Annual replacement required and several different ways for Apple to bleed money out of consumers during the life of the product.

these were the ads that started my whole anti apple mentality. before them, i simply like windows more, i then almost fell for this junk then realized they were full of it. now because of these ads, i started to see more of their bs and is why i hate them and will never own anything apple. so will i miss them? heck no

Give credit where credit is due.  Advertisements aren't designed to be fair, they're designed to sell.  I think these did just that.  Besides, I got a good laugh from them and more often than not agreed with them.  You guys take the Apple vs. Pc thing far too seriously.

 I agree w/PawBear, just good for a laugh & thats about it.. Good Luck, Phil B.

In what way did you agree with the Anti PC advertisements? Are you from MaximumMac.com spying on us?

Aw Cry me a river Justin Apple Long. PC wins.

I've had people tell me to try to be more PC. Or hey that wasn't PC. So PC has made it's way to every aspect of American Life.. 

I've never had anyone tell me hey thats not Mac or try to be more Mac....

 Is the Onion's "A.V. Club" a real news site, or another parody news site like 'The Onion' ??

It's a real news site that concentrates mostly on entertainment (movies, comics, etc).

Out with a whimper. That's the Apple way. No worries, seeing how these ads just haven't had the same impact since Microsoft's "Laptop Hunters" debuted, and went a long way towards opening the general public's eyes to how ridiculously overpriced Macs are.
