Joe Wilcox is right: The Microsoft “I’m not cool enough for a Mac” campaign has really struck a nerve. The Mac sites are abuzz with rebuttals, cries of foul, and general wailing and gnashing of teeth.
The reason for the attention is probably because there’s a grain of truth in what Microsoft is saying. The argument is pretty simple: the limited range of Mac models means that you can end up paying way over your budget to get a single feature. If you want a 17in machine and don’t want to pay an eye-watering £1,949, you’re out of luck. Yes, you get a lot of machine for that £1,949 – but some people just don’t require all the features that you get with a Mac.
