    I'm 100% with you on this. Not only is it pretty well false, they're also using actors for these commercials, not the “regular guy” Microsoft is leading you to believe. I think it was Engadget or Gizmodo that ended up tracking down the woman in the initial commercial. I also find it fishy that they're only picking out HP's.
    Once you add up all the additions that Apple just simply includes, it can get pretty pricey. Also, there's that whole virus thing.
