After taking hits at Apple products including the iPad and the MacBook Air in previous Surface Pro 3 TV ads, Microsoft is back with a Christmas-themed commercial in which it highlights the main advantages the Surface Pro 3 has over the MacBook Air.

The ad is basically a Microsoft Winter Wonderland spot meant to convince computer buyers that a Surface Pro 3 might be the better choice for users this holiday season. The company’s latest Surface model, which has been selling rather well according to recent reports, has a touchscreen display, a built-in stand, a USB port, and can be removed from its keyboard dock to be used in tablet mode.

Comparatively, the MacBook Air doesn’t have touchscreen display or a stand, and doesn’t have a tablet mode.
