Microsoft debuts new 'Honestly' media campaign

Microsoft is debuting a new advertising campaign that focuses around the word 'honestly'. The two spots, posted below, are 30 seconds in length and we expect to see them hit the big screen in your family room in the near future.

The Surface 2 TV ad shows a teacher who at first praises his love for the chalkboard. However, he says that all of his students now use the new Surface 2 to do their homework as well as other non-school activities. 

The other TV ad shows a paramedic who wants to get into medical school. She says she needs a laptop that can help her with her pre-med classes, but could also turn into a tablet for when she has some down time. This ad shows Windows 8.1 running on the Lenovo Yoga 11S, which first came out a few months ago, as the solution for her tablet-notebook hybrid needs. Both ads show that Microsoft is serious about pushing both its own hardware as well as helping out OEMs who are releasing PCs with Windows 8.1.
