Microsoft’s Newest Surface Pro 3 Ad Bashes Macbook Air Through A Holiday Song

There are plenty of Christmas songs coming out of the woodwork for this holiday season, and Microsoft has released their version in the latest Surface Pro 3 advertisement. The 30-second spot showcases their touchscreen tablet alongside their biggest competitor, Apple's Macbook Air with humorous lyrics set to the beat of “Walking in a Winter Wonderland” by Dean Martin.

The main advantages emphasized during the short commercial include the touch-screen, the pen stylus, detachable keyboard, fold-out kickstand and USB port. It is an interesting decision from the Redmond-based company to compare the Surface Pro 3 to a Macbook Air instead of Apple's line of iPad tablets. The choice is likely due to a $300 price difference between the iPad Air 2 and the Surface Pro 3 which might cause the advantage to lean a bit farther in the iPad's direction.
