Microsoft's New Program Lets Customers Upgrade Their Surface Tablets, Laptops

Microsoft launches Surface Plus upgrade plan

Microsoft launches Surface Plus upgrade plan

The Surface Plus program carries a 24-month payment plan at zero percent April for the first two years and a 19.99% April after that. Unfortunately, there is now no information on how the trade-in process works when you're ready to upgrade or if you will receive a purchase credit for the old device.

Additionally, Microsoft's Surface Hub digital whiteboard, which costs $9,000, is available to corporate customers via monthly installments, which was previously unavailable. Better still for the fans, you are eligible to upgrade to a new device after 18 months.

- Flexible Terms: Businesses can choose flexible 18, 24, or 30 month periods, with the ability to upgrade devices after just 12 months on a 24-month term (after 18 months on the 30-month term). "Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business are flexible financing options created to help more people and businesses take advantage of the power of Surface". Customers also have the option to add the Microsoft Complete extended service plan.

Surface Plus members also get what Microsoft calls "best in class" service and support from Microsoft Stores.

As Microsoft continues to push Surface towards its education audience, the company is today launching a new Surface Plus financing/subscription program geared towards students.

It also said it would seize a Moscow compound used by USA diplomats as well as a United States diplomatic warehouse. The U.S. embassy in Moscow and the State Department both declined to say.

Also on Tuesday, Microsoft unveiled Surface Plus for Business, a similar monthly-payment plan for small-to-medium businesses that buy Surface devices.

- Multiple Surface models: Customers can add as many devices as they want into a single agreement and can have a mix of models across the Surface portfolio. Now, Microsoft has made the full range of new Surface Pen colors available for preorder, including Burgundy, Cobalt Blue, and Black options (via MSPU).

The program lets participants upgrade to a new machine after 18 months when they return their existing hardware in good condition. For an extra $US8.25 per device per month, Surface Plus business buyers will also get the Office 365 suite.

Businesses can expand or reduce their device fleet mid-term.
