The Ads campaign started by Apple – ‘Get a Mac’ charmed a lot of users. The Ads were a response to PC’s and showed why a Mac is better than a PC. It encouraged users to Get a Mac instead of a PC as Mac’s are faster, runs Microsoft Office and Windows, do not get viruses, does not crash or give headaches. Justin Long, who plays Mac in the Get a Mac Ads has reportedly told ‘The Onion’ that these hilarious, witty and ingenious Ads might be done. Now, Apple has also removed these Ads from the website and instead put up “Why You’ll love a Mac”.
