Who doesn't love a little Mac vs. PC feud? Apple just released a new commercial in response to Microsoft's "Laptop Hunters" ads. The Microsoft commercials usually feature a bright, starry-eyed young person who is given money to find a laptop that fits their specific needs. Price is a major factor in these commercials, and Microsoft constantly calls Apple out on the matter.

Apple's commercial shows the normal scene of the "Mac" and the "PC" talking to each other, but this time there's also a Megan -- a young woman who tells PC what she's looking for. Engadget said it best: "According to Apple, there aren't any PCs with fast processors and big screens that work without viruses, crashes or headaches. But folks, this isn't reality, this is advertising."
