Like several prior commercials in the popular Get a Mac campaign, Time Machine touts the benefits of Mac OS X over Microsoftis Windows operating system.

The Mac and PC characters were recently named the best ad-based characters of the year by USATODAY. The characters "masterfully humanize a complex technical comparison," according to the publication.

Time Machine is available on the Apple Web site in the QuickTime format.
