To echo sentiment /statements already mentioned:
Seven has done a lot to redress the image/usability 'issues' that truthful and/or sheer fallacy, went with the tired old virus ridden XP and that nasty Vista image most MAC users heard
To that end and with relatively few 'horror' stories and generally favourable perception and reception of Seven - has also done wonders for MS sales and re-adoption.
It will be interesting to see what happens when/if Apple do go with AMD chips in the future. The 'cost' argument may become close to a moot point with apple potentially
reducing prices and bridging the gap to it's PC counterparts.
However, as it currently stands cost is undoubtedly a factor for a lot of people.

There hasn't been a fresh 'Mac vs PC' ad because it was a campaign that not only got old fast, but also backfired somewhat on Apple by people suddenly declaring themselves 'PC'. They inadvertently created a viable 'rival' image.
The lack of substance to those 'Mac vs PC' ads is also testament to the fact that the Apple marketing Machine were already grasping at straws.
