Ron Rivard (the Computer Store manager) will check with Comcast who produced the ad to make a change when the ad is updated. The processor statement was mentioned for a brief second as the sparty mascot was thinking about what he needed when he went to purchase a computer" (i.e. mmm "what do I need"? "how much memory?", "how much processor"?).
I was very impressed with the quality of the ad that was produced by Comcast. They were able to target specific shows and times that matched the demographics we desired at a reasonable price.

Has anyone else seen the television ads for the MSU Computer Store running on local cable channels, such as Comedy Central, for the last six months or so? If so, did you catch the part that promises "2 megahertz of processing power"? Shades of 1980!
