I’m a Mac..and I’m a PC – The 1.0 version

Long before Apple used a guy in a tweed jacket and young hipster to compare the PC to Macintosh, there was this ad from the mid-80s that used actual computers. I have mentioned this ad to people who had never seen it, now I can display the real thing (slightly shortened unfortunately).

While advertising for Macs and Ipods primarily feature users who are young, surveys reveal that 45% of Mac users are over 55 years old, meaning those users were in their 20s and 30s when this ad premiered. I would not be surprised to find that this ad’s impact lingers to this day in the form of dedicated Mac users.
