Young family discovers that $700 will buy you a PC, but not a MacBook.
It's been a while since we've seen a Laptop Hunters commercial, the commercial series from Microsoft that pushes the PC more than any of its software products.
The series is back, however, with Matt and Olivia hoping to find the perfect laptop for sharing pictures of their son Jayden with friends and family. Their requirements are that the laptop must have a large screen with great battery life and must cost no more than $700. As with all the other Laptop Hunters commercials, the Microsoft narrator says, "You find it, you keep it."
Off the young family went through the aisles of what is surely Best Buy, looking at all their various options. Olivia commented on liking the pink laptop as well as suggested that the diminutive netbook was perfect for her baby Jayden.
Of course, no Laptop Hunters episode is complete without a poke at the Apple camp. The family stopped to look at the white polycarbonate MacBook that's priced at $999. The immediate complaints were that it was too small and about its price. Of course, with a starting limit of $700, a MacBook was already off the list to start with regardless of specifications.
In the end, Matt and Olivia decided on the HP dv7, just as Lauren did in the very first Laptop Hunters commercial. Check it out below!
