The Lenovo Yoga Pro 3 dances circles around the Apple MacBook Air in Microsoft's new ad
These are fair arguments when you think about it. Then again, the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is a more expensive machine ($1299 vs $999 for the MacBook Air) and has poorer battery life, which it trades for a much sharper display. So the choice between the two still isn't as immediate as Microsoft would like it to appear.
What's also interesting is that Microsoft skips its usual target - the iPad - focusing on Apple's best-selling laptop. As Cupertino's tablet sales are growing weaker, its presence in the personal computer market grows stronger. Thanks to surging Mac sales, the company reached the top five PC manufacturers roster for the first time. Obviously, Satya and the gang are watching closely.
