Intel Tweet Asking Why Former Mac Users Switched to PC Backfires

Other replies consist of Apple users trolling Intel, with one stating ”
Youre not welcomed” with a picture of the upcoming “Unleashed” event invite. One reply, in Intels defense, says that Apple is “a low performance luxury brand name with costly hardware and a lower ecosystem since its closed.”

Ahead of Mondays Apple occasion, which is anticipated to include the much-awaited launch of brand name brand-new 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pros, Intel is continuing its long-running project to try and persuade Mac users to change to Intel-based PCs.

Continuing its streak, yesterday, the main Intel account tweeted out, “Confessions of former Mac users. What made you #GoPC?” Rather of previous Mac users engaging with the tweet on reasons they changed to PC, the tweet instead consists of replies of present Mac users poking enjoyable at Intels “desperate” marketing efforts. One comment reads, “Just confess: youre simply pissed that Apple dumped you and designed a method better processor by themselves.”

Continuing its streak, the other day, the main Intel account tweeted out, “Confessions of former Mac users. Instead of former Mac users engaging with the tweet on reasons they changed to PC, the tweet instead includes replies of present Mac users poking enjoyable at Intels “desperate” marketing efforts. One remark checks out, “Just admit it: youre simply pissed that Apple dropped you and developed a method better processor by themselves.”

Recently, Intel released a video as part of its PC vs. Mac project that included “Apple fans” introduced to various Intel computer systems and all of their functions. During the four-minute video, Intel tried to paint Apple consumers as unconcerned to “developments” made by companies besides Apple, consisting of “touch screen” laptop computers.

Ironically, while Intel goes on the defense, Apple still sells Mac computer systems powered by Intel processors. After Mondays “Unleashed” event, the higher-end MacBook Pro will no longer be Intel-based and will officially change to Apple silicon, but other Macs such as the 27-inch iMac and Mac Pro still function Intel processors.

Apple officially embarked on its transition to Apple silicon in November of last year, and the business is anticipated to completely move all of its Mac computers away from Intel next year.
