Thread Starter 
It appears the Microsoft "Laptop Hunter" ads are, indeed, created on Macs...

Does Microsoft have no shame?

The ads are for average Joes walking into a retail outlet to buy an affordable machine though. If the guys in the ad agency were in the ad, they would opt for Macs because of the advantages they have in creative fields and price would probably not be a barrier. Price is always the barrier in the Microsoft ads.

I think the fact that these guys use Macs is the reason why the ads are more accurate than usual and target probably Apple's biggest weaknesses - prices and options.
