Microsoft’s latest advertisement puts iPad to shame. The ad says that the Surface Go is a real computer and it’s the perfect device for entertainment, productivity and work.

Apple iPad remains the most popular tablet and it’s one of the few tablets to enjoy any kind of growth this year as the whole market is stagnant. Earlier this year, Microsoft unveiled the Surface Go, the smallest and cheapest Surface model to date.

Microsoft’s Surface Go is a competitor to Apple’s iPad and Microsoft has gone on the attack with a new holiday ad for Surface Go.

The ad features a ten-year-old who is asking her granny not to buy an iPad because she needs a real computer.

Apple originally used “what’s a computer?” tagline to promote the iPad in its advertisements. A 10-year-old girl in the commercial is asking her granny to buy her a ‘real computer’ which is Microsoft Surface Go. She explains that iPad was fine when she was six but now she’s ten so she needs a real computer to meet her big dreams.

“Big dreams need a real computer, like the Surface Go, to help make them come true. This holiday season, discover all the possibilities with the Surface Go. Portable, powerful and starts at $399,” Microsoft writes in the description section of the video ad.

“Grandma, don’t run out and buy an iPad,” she tells her granny in the funny ad. “It was fine when I was six, but now I’m 10. My dreams are big so I need a real computer.”
