This Time Laptop Hunters Promotes Dell Instead Of HP

Posted May 15, 2009

Microsoft Corporation is continuing to push their Laptop Hunters series of commercials through different characters. Apple recently did a spoof of the Laptop Hunters commercials themselves with the Mac vs. PC characters and a girl named Megan.

In this commercial, the two girls Lauren and Sue were given $1700 to buy a PC. They ended up picking up a Dell XPS 13. I believe that this was the first time that the Laptop Hunters series of people ended up buying a Dell. The last few times the characters ended up buying an HP. The cost ended up being $971.99. They decided to pick up that laptop after seeing that a Mac laptop was $2,000.

I don’t know how many more of these commercials Microsoft will be releasing before they start a new marketing campaign, but I think I find myself becoming bored already. Even the Apple vs. PC commercials that Apple uses are starting to get pretty boring too. C’mon marketing companies, give us something fresh!
