The Loop reports on Microsoft’s ad attacking the Google Chromebook.

This ad makes the case that the Chromebook is not a real laptop, that when it is not connected to the internet, it is “pretty much a brick.” I don’t own a Chromebook, and I’m not necessarily a Chromebook fan, but fair is fair. A “brick”? It took me all of 2 minutes reading reviews to dispel this myth.

Microsoft seems to think that attacking other brands’ products is the best way to promote its own products.

Apple Insider also looked at the Microsoft ad bashing the iPad Air.
