Microsoft is trying to sway potential new Mac buyers from jumping on board the Apple train with their new website “Do the math.” Microsoft famously launched a TV campaign a few years back where they had users go into local stores and compare the prices of PC’s versus Macs with generally the same specs. Their point was to show that for less money, you can get a fully stocked PC.
Well, the campaign is back in some form with the new website launched in Canada which pits the Mac against similar PC’s and lets you decide which is worth the funds. You can choose from a few different Macs: MacBook 13, MacBook Air 11, MacBook Air 13, MacBook pro 13, MacBook Pro 15, MacBook Pro 17, iMac 25.1 or iMac 27 and see how similar Windows 7-based computers from other manufacturers stack up in specifications and price.
Have you done the math? Do you think the flexibility offered by a Windows PC is a trade-off for the tight cohesive experience that Apple wants users to experience. I’m a PC because I prefer Windows 7 and I’m into building my own PC’s, but I’d like to hear what you guys think in the comments. You can head on over to the website to check the differences when compared by visiting Do the Math here.
