Microsoft has just unleashed a brand new Windows 8 commercial that pits it against the iPad. And this one may well be the best one yet, as it shows both deices in a real-world scenario.
This short 31-second ad shows the Lenovo Yoga, and highlights how the device offers all of the features of the iPad while in tablet mode, but can easily flip to a standard laptop layout when needed.
The setting is a classroom, making this a pretty neat introduction to Windows 8 tablets for those that are heading back to school. Makes one wonder why this ad was not produced and aired over the summer, before people purchased the back to school goods.
Nevertheless, as noted above, this is one of the better ads Microsoft has put out:
And while this commercial is another spin on Microsoft’s Windows 8 versus iPad ads, Redmond has not actually mentioned the price this time around, unlike previous ads like this in the series.
The Yoga 11s shown in the video starts at a significant price of $749, which in some instances makes it a bit more expensive than the iPad — depending on the model and accessories. The ad, obviously, does not name the Yoga, but Microsoft could well have created the same ad with the Surface.
