Mocking Apple Users

It's about time somebody started laughing at the self-absorbed Mac users who have money to waste on girlie looking computers. Not that there is anything wrong with buying a girlie looking computer...

I love these ads by Microsoft.

What has been the response from Apple?

...Apple's announcement of laptops that move the Mac maker further into the mainstream price range, perhaps with machines as low as $800.

Machines as low as $800! Wow. 

I'll bet that the machines will still look like something Punky Brewster would buy, and (if you're a girl) that's okay.  

And about that Apple Tax, here are the numbers of desktops under $800 according to CNET:

And we'll check out the laptops available for the same price:

Guess what? There are no Apple laptops available for people who don't have a lot of money to throw around. Where is the Apple for the working stiff on a budget? This is kind of elitist, don't you think? 

If you go look up elitist in the will find a photo of an over-priced, stylish looking Apple Computer with a user (often in touch with their feminine side) who just wants to be seen as a hip person. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just sad...
