Lenovo Breaks MacBook Air in Half in Hidden Camera Prank to Promote the Yoga 3 [VIDEO]


Lenovo is behind a new video, which was released today, that attempts to promote the company’s Yoga 3 convertible laptop.

The video puts the Yoga 3 against Apple’s MacBook Air, in an attempt to show that Lenovo’s product is more flexible and versatile. The scene is surrounded by hidden cameras, which captures customers’ reactions when a MacBook is broken in half by a prank salesman who is trying to sell the Yoga 3.

Breaking the MacBook Air in half was supposed to demonstrate how the Yoga 3 combines a laptop and a tablet into one flexible device. The Yoga 3 is a foldable 13mm thin convertible laptop/tablet hybrid, which starts at US$1,300. Lenovo might not be making as strong of an argument as it needs to, given that the MacBook Air only starts at US$899.
