The new Laptop Hunters Ad with Vista doesn’t make sense when 7 is just around the corner

In the latest version of the ongoing Laptop Hunters Ad series, Matt and Olivia goes on hunting to buy a notebook for under $700. They wander around the store, looking for different notebooks including a Macbook which they needless to say reject, saying ”Mac is just too small”. They finally settled on buying a freaking HP branded notebook (again) for just under $700!

Don’t you think its kind of pointless now to air these new ads which feature Vista when Windows 7 is going to RTM next week? I think its about time for Microsoft to start promoting Windows 7 with full force to create some hype before the public release in September! This strategy may also help them in increasing pre-order sales for Windows 7. What do you think?
