Apple’s ‘Get a Mac’ Ad Campaign Ends, Starts ‘Why You’ll Love a Mac’

Posted on May 21, 2010 by

Apple’s popular “Get a Mac” ad campaign, starring John Hodgman and Justin Long, is officially over.  The ads ran from 2006-2009 and featured Hodgman as a PC and Long as a Mac.  Each ad would humorously point out the flaws of Windows and the many benefits of getting a Mac.

Apple’s gallery of “Get a Mac” ads has been removed from the site, with the URL redirecting to the “Why You’ll Love a Mac” page.

The new page says “Why get a new PC and just upgrade your computer, when you can get a Mac and upgrade your entire computer experience?”  The page highlights the following reasons on “Why You’ll Love a Mac”:

  • It’s designed to be a better computer.
  • It comes with software you’ll love to use.
  • It comes with the world’s most advanced OS.
