Intel has launched an incredibly misleading 'PC vs. Mac' website
What you need to know
- Intel has launched a new 'PC vs. Mac' website.
- The site is heavily biased towards the benefits of Windows and PC over macOS and the Mac.
As part of its attack ad campaign Apple's new M1 processor, Intel has launched a new 'PC vs. Mac' website that cherrypicks its way into convincing visitors that a PC outshines the Mac.
Spotted by MacRumors, the new website attempts to point out flaws with both the M1 chip as well as macOS as an operating system.
The website tries to make the argument that "PC offers users a choice, something that users don't get with a Mac."
The site goes on to point out that there are fully touchscreen PCs while lambasting the Mac for the Touch Bar.
The new website is part of a new campaign from Intel in its attempts to regain footing after Apple shocked the processing world with its new M1 chip for the Mac. The company has recruited Justin Long, the actor who played the Mac guy in the old Mac vs PC ads for Apple, to now try and sway customers the opposite way.

It's unclear how the campaign will go, especially as the company is struggling to catch up to not only Apple but AMD in terms of processing technology.
