Microsoft has launched a new ‘PC vs. Mac’
site, and this one encourages potential Canadian Mac buyers to ‘do the math’ before buying.
The idea is that you compare the price of Mac systems to ‘corresponding’ Windows-based systems (I can’t add enough quotes around ‘corresponding’ so I won’t try, but rest assured that these systems have been carefully chosen) and end up being awed by the savings you could make by choosing Windows over Mac (and then you spend the savings on a vacation).
Along with price, the potential Mac buyer is encouraged to compare other specs, such as screen size, processor, RAM, battery life, and color options (seriously, I’m not kidding, although most of the choices here seem to be silver or black). Beneath each of the Windows systems Microsoft has a convenient ‘Buy Now’ button for you to use.
