surfacead12Microsoft is out today with another advertisement bashing Apple, and this time the Redmond company is using the classic Mac vs. PC debate to prove its point.

The newest Surface Pro 3 ads compare Microsoft’s tablet to the MacBook Air and evoke memories of Apple’s classic Mac vs. PC commercials.

Microsoft again notes how the Surface Pro 3 is the “tablet that can replace your laptop” and touts features like the touchscreen, kickstand, stylus, USB port, and detachable keyboard (which is sold separately).

Microsoft has certainly had its fair share of ads explaining why the Surface is superior to Apple’s iPad, but this time the messaging is a little different with the MacBook Air comparisons.

Earlier this summer, Microsoft offered a deal that paid customers $650 in credit towards a new Surface Pro 3 for their Macbook Air.
