Google Adwords mistake exposes new Macbooks

Plans for a new series of macbooks, imacs and more powerful Macmini's have been exposed in the Dutch version of Google. 

It's probably a case of a too early release of Adwords-ads. Three advertisements seem to have been published too early by Apple's international store.

The ads showed up this weekend on Google.nl. When the ads were clicked on however the products were not available in the online Apple store.

Apple insider says there are more countries in which similar ads popped up without a result page. The ads have now disappeared.

See below the images Appleinsider collected.

Apple_ads_insider_1
Translation: "Thinner, lighter, more powerful. Free delivery. Order today!"
Apple_ads_insider_2
Translation: The Brand new iMac. Ultra Thin 20 & 24 inch models. From only € 1099. Apple Store
Apple_ads_insider
Translation: Apple's New Mac Mini. Faster and more affordable than ever. From only € 499. Order immediately.

  • The first translation is identical to the second. It should read "Thinner, lighter, more powerful. Free delivery. Order today!"
