While Apple rises to the top as the most valued company in the world and Microsoft drops to the fifth in the same list, The guys at Microsoft decided it is time to attack Apple’s sales.
Although it used to be Apple who attacked Microsoft with little winks, now Microsoft has decided to attack where it matters most in these times of economic crisis “pocket”. In this sense, Bill Gates’s company has launched a campaign website under the name “Do the math” – Surf the web or surf Hawaii.
On this page, Microsoft encourages potential buyers to buy a computer from Microsoft rather than Apple simply because one of the brutal price difference between two products even if they have the same characteristics.
In this way Microsoft wants users to worry more about saving than the quality.The page offers a series of comparative charts which compares the full range of Apple computers with the best of Microsoft PCs, highlighting the price and comparing the technical components.
What if we put some more columns to these tables with a few unknown brand PCs running a Linux distribution? That would be cheaper still, and give us for two trips instead of one.
Well hope this trick from Microsoft works to capture the marketshare from the very famous and virally spreading “i fever” of apple.
