Apple sometimes puts out with weird ads, albeit amusing at times. But quite frankly I find some of these newer ones to be downright insulting. I mean c'mon, cheap stock to print out and read a Twitter post?

You tell me people. Which of these makes you feel more rewarded for being a Mac user, and which of these makes you feel like Mac users are a marketing gimmick at your expense? (I tried the YouTube tag but it just keeps telling me that an error occurred and to try again later.)

Apple has to make you buy their iPad Pro when a much more capable MBA is the same price or even cheaper. That is a hard sell to most (and one reason why I returned my IPP and bought the MBA).

I thought this one was a retread of old ads, but the ending is fun:

I think Apple is quite happy whichever you buy. The MBA cannot be expensive to manufacture these days - the process is known, the display is bargain-basement, the CPU is last-gen.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Safari is LOADED more than ever with random GUI bugs, inconsistent behavior with URL typing and use of arrow keys to go to one of the results, etc. And yet Apple is more worried about USB-C ports. If there was any proof that Steve Jobs was glad to have MagSafe, this was it:
