Microsoft shows how Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro is better than Apple's MacBook Air in a new ad

Lenovo recently launched the Yoga 3 Pro convertible. The hybrid laptop is impressively thin, sports a great design, and comes with a slew of amazing features. Microsoft wants more people to notice this device, including Apple fanboys, so it has posted a new ad on its channel where it pits the Yoga 3 Pro against MacBook Air.

In a dance-off themed video, the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro shows its superiority over MacBook Air with its touchscreen-capable display, and the hinge that allows it to rotate up to 360 degrees, making it possible to be used as a tablet. The MacBook Air doesn’t have a touchscreen capable display, furthermore, it can’t be folded back on itself like the Lenovo convertible.

Additionally, the video also notes that at 13mm thickness, Yoga 3 Pro is thinner than 17-mm thin MacBook Air. “It’s an epic dance-off between the new Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro and the MacBook Air. But does the MacBook Air stand a chance against the sleekness and multi-mode flexibility of the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro? Nope. And once you add the touchscreen, it’s game over,” says the ad.

To keep the comparison fair, Apple enthusiasts may point out that the entry level Yoga 3 Pro ($1,199) is more expensive than the MacBook Air ($899), and has shorter battery life.
