Snippet: Best Dell Ad Ever ☇

Shared on November 13, 2012

It seems it wasn’t just a Dell TV ad that I saw on Sunday, but Dell is using an interesting quote on all sorts of advertisements, as so nicely pointed out by John Gruber:

The Dell XPS 12 looks like a MacBook Air merged with an iPad.

Also interesting is that the quote itself is from a tweet by Chris Boyd, a grad student (nothing wrong with that). Boyd has no affiliation with Dell, and for marketing purposes, it’s strange to see his edited quote trumping positive ones from more formal members of the tech press…or are there any?

Snippets are posts that share a linked item with a bit of commentary.
