Dear Apple: I Don't Get It

Posted by Aaron West at 10:17 PM in Mac, Leopard

I was cruising around Apple's Web site the other day when I happened upon the OS X product page. I was immediately presented with an ad (well, not so much an ad as a photo) for Leopard which is shown below. What the heck Apple? What does this ad mean? What do you mean I can add a new Mac to a Mac? Are you serious? Further thought on the ad produced the idea that perhaps their message is that by buying and installing Leopard (on your existing Mac) you are effectively getting a new one. If that's their point, I think they missed the point of advertising. This has to be the worst attempt from Apple in a long time... they typically are so great at advertising.
