It’s no secret that we here at WinSource have a little crush on the Acer AspireS7 ultrabook. It’s super sleek, has a great keyboard, a touchscreen, and is absolutely perfect for Windows 8. We got a look at in in person last week at the Windows 8 event in Times Square and that made us like it even more. When we heard Acer had created a commercial for the S7 we were excited, but after watching it we are disappointing.
The commercial features the once-very-popular-but-not-any-more Megan Fox, scientists, and dolphins, but not much of the actual device. The ad is about Fox using an Aspire S7 to learn about dolphins and eventually translate their sounds to English. It’s a very strange commercial for a device that could sell itself on looks alone. We would much prefer to see the actual device being the focus instead of a washed up celebrity.
What do you think?
