Dell, HP, Intel, Lenovo and Microsoft are collaborating for the first time on a joint advertising campaign that showcases the exciting innovation in today’s newest personal computers (PCs).
The six-week campaign highlights the significant innovation in today’s PCs, prompting consumers to ask “PC Does What?” and inspiring them to question whether their current PC can do the same. The integrated campaign will run across TV, digital and social elements, complemented by native advertising, to reinforce the advanced capabilities of the modern PC.
