Poor guy...

I found this video sadly comical. The product rep is doing his best with the little HP has given him to work with. The target audience are “Fashionistas?” Some marketers probably high-fived each other when that bon mot was tossed out during a meeting.

Around four minutes in to his pitch, you can just see the product rep deflate when the interviewer says something like, “I mean this as a compliment, but it looks a lot like a MacBook Pro.”

It’s especially sad when you think about Steve Jobs introducing the MacBook Air back in 2008. The MacBook Air has been upgraded a few times since, and the HP that was just released still isn’t nearly as sleek as the ’08 MBA.
