'Trainer' Get a Mac ad trumpets buyer satisfaction

updated 10:55 am EDT, Mon August 31, 2009

'Trainer' Get a Mac ad

Apple has begun airing its third new "Get a Mac" TV spot in under a week. Called "Trainer," the ad sees PC (John Hodgman) doing sit-ups as a personal trainer (Robert Loggia) and Mac (Justin Long) watch on. The trainer berates PC, pointing out that PC Magazine has rated Mac number one in customer support, and that PC World readers have called Mac the highest in reliability.

The trainer lastly suggests that Mac is "number one in customer satisfaction," though the ad does not cite a source for this claim. Apple has achieved continued success during 2009, slowing in some areas only because of the global recession, and the cannibalization of iPod sales due to the company's own iPhone. The company may also lack some draw due to the absence of a netbook option.

    re: Safari

    Boomw, no problem with audio here. I'm still on 10.5 and will be for the forseeable future. You may want to restart Safari, sometimes it simply forgets how to play audio!

    "Top Of The Line"

    is better. And R. Lee Ermey would have been a better choice than Loggia... also I was suprised Hodgman could do three sit-ups in a row!

    His problem is he only has audio, not that safari forgot to play it.

    However

    It is nice to know Robert Loggia is still alive.

    "may lack some draw"

    The company may also lack some draw due to the $500 - $1000 premium paid versus what the hardware is actually worth on most of Apple's systems. I'm quite certain that I couldn't have gotten similar hardware to the system that I just built from Apple for anything close to the ~ $1600 I paid for it. (Core i7 920, 6 GB DDR3 2000 MHz, GTX 275, 850W PSU, etc.)
