Microsoft slams Chromebooks again in new Windows 8.1 ad

Microsoft may have run a heart warming TV commercial during the Super Bowl telecast on Sunday, however, it was back to business as usual after the football match with yet another new TV ad. This one aired on the episode of "New Girl" that ran right after the NFL championship game on Fox in the U.S.

The commercial is a variation on the "Honestly" ads that Microsoft has run in the past few months, with people taking directly to the camera about the benefits of Windows-based hardware devices. In this new commercial, "Karate", Microsoft ups the ante a bit by having the "Mom" take a shot against Chromebooks, which the company has already done in a separate campaign.

In the ad, the mother said that she was surprised to find an Asus Windows 8 notebook that costs less than $300 that she could give to her kids. She adds that the notebook won't have the limitations of Chromebooks that can't install Office software and need a WiFi connection in order to use many of its features.
