New Microsoft commercial pokes fun at Apple's lack of Blu-ray

A new Microsoft advertisement pokes fun at Apple's lack of support for Blu-ray on their Mac laptops. The commercial makes fun of the lack of support for Blu-ray in Mac OS X, even with the latest update to v10.6.5.

The minute long commercial features a Windows laptop with Blu-ray support, sitting next to a Mac laptop on an airplane. The animated cardboard cut-out ad shows Windows 7 based laptops have built-in Blu-ray support, while the Mac laptop watches Avatar (on the PC) during a long flight.

The commercial follows a long line of "I'm a PC" commercials, that help promote all of Windows 7 features, with the catch phrase, "Windows 7 was my idea." It seems Microsoft is finally fighting back after Mac bashed Windows in their "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" campaign, which spotlighted the operating systems faults.

You should take note that Avatar is not available in HD on the iTunes movie store.

The 1:12 commercial ends with "No Macs were used in the making of this video," another stab at Apple.
