This old Lenovo ad has the final word on Apple’s new MacBook Pro dongle hell
We get it: A lot of you hate the new MacBook Pro. Whether it’s the new Touch Bar so many think they don’t need, or the dongle hell that Apple’s port switcheroo will cause, the company’s latest laptop isnt winning many (vocal) fans.
Now, just two weeks after the launch of the MacBook Pro, an ancient Lenovo commercial from 2008 has been surfaced that perfectly slams Apple’s new top of the line laptop. Riffing off Apple’s ad that showed the MacBook Air fitting into an envelope, Lenovo takes the laptop and shows how much trouble you have to go through to connect various devices to the laptop. The spot ends with a promotional nod to the company’s ThinkPad X300.
And while that ad didn’t manage to spoil the popularity of the MacBook Air with consumers, many years later, it turns out that Lenovo was, well, kind of right.
