Apple Slams PCs in New iPad Pro Ad Campaign

Apple wants you to throw out your computer and buy an iPad Pro instead. See, an iPad does everything that your computer can, and not only that, it is immune to "PC viruses." Wait, viruses written for PCs don’t affect Apple tablets? Mind blown! Something tells me that the Cupertino company is going to get BTFO by Microsoft’s inevitable Surface Pro 5 campaign.

آ…Apple claims iPad Pro is "faster than most laptops, has LTE like your phone and has a touchscreen you can write on." Ergo, Apple concludes, it's better than a computer. Another ad boasts specifically about the LTE facility, which means that "you can get internet pretty much anywhere." The next ad has a word you never thought you'd hear in an Apple ad: "Microsoft." It shows how you can download Microsoft Word on an iPad Pro and then "do more with Word." Yes, it even works with that indispensable Apple Pencil. The one that Apple promised it would never even contemplate making. "Over my head body," as Steve Jobs once put it.
