Microsoft's latest Surface Pro 4 ad trashes MacBook Air

Microsoft compares Surface Pro 4 against MacBook Air, which says is as useful as 'a hat for your cat'

Microsoft is on the offensive with its new TV spot for the Surface Pro 4, comparing it against the MacBook Air from Apple, saying that the MacBook Air is as useful as "a hat for your cat". Meow.

The video uses some of the points Microsoft made in earlier Surface videos, reiterating that the Surface Pro 4 rocks a detachable keyboard, pen, and a much better touchscreen display. Microsoft says in the video that the MacBook Air is "slower, heavier, and a bit square" and that it's "less useful, like a hat for your cat".

It's hard to argue with that, as the MacBook Air is kinda useless when pitted up against the Surface Pro 4 and all of its improvements and added features.
