Add a reason why Mac is better

Microsoft’s “I’m a PC” Ads – Made on a Mac

Added on: Wednesday December 9, 2009

Flickr user LuisDS discovered metadata on the creative copy of the “stereotyped PC user” and other photos appearing on Microsoft’s “I’m a PC” website that reveal they were produced using Macs running Adobe Creative Suite 3.

Microsoft code monkeys scrubbed the identifying information from the website stills overnight.

    That’s no surprise. Everyone knows Mac are for the more creative applications. But for good old gaming or down to Earth productivity in the office, you can’t go past a PC.

    Agreed. Mac’s are still for the creatives. But the rest of us are quite happy with our PC’s :-)

    Once you go MAC you never go BACK!

    Even games run better on Macs. Don’t fight it, You know which platform is the best. Less crap hardware, less unstable OS, less bullshit in the long run. PC’s suck. Build a bridge and get over it!

    Yer, I have both a mac and a pc that I use for design, and I prefer the PC.

    Also, the apple mouses are awful (stupid attempt at sleek but non-functional design)

    I had a Mac and I went back to a PC.

    Anon, I completely agree about the design. It’s annoying!

    For all you non tech savvy people out there do you realise macs are not restricted to Apple mice? I am using a Razer mouse as we speak. Grow a few brain cells before commenting next time please.
