Microsoft Windows 10 Tip: How to use Surface Dial with Paint 3D

Microsoft launches Surface Plus upgrade plan Microsoft Announces Surface Plus For Business Program

Microsoft has given some customers new ways to buy Surface tablets and laptops. For those who don't want to pay all at once, you can also opt in to a monthly payment plan to ease the strain on your bank account. You can upgrade to a new Surface device in 18, 24 or 30 months. There is also the added bonus of support from Microsoft Stores, and the Microsoft Complete extended service plan. Surface Plus has been launched exclusively for the United States and it will be available starting today.

Microsoft is bringing these benefits to small and medium-sized businesses as well.

The other major boon is the ability to upgrade to a new Surface device after 18 months, with certain conditions pertaining, as Microsoft makes clear in its blog post on this matter.

It's unclear how much money people will save through the upgrade because it depends on the kind of Surface device involved.

The two plans, Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business, are available at Microsoft.com or at Microsoft stores in the US.

In addition to the Surface Laptop and Surface Pro, Microsoft's new Pen is also compatible with the Surface 3, Pro 3, Pro 4, Book and Studio.

-Dedicated Service & Support: Surface Plus offers best in class service and support from Microsoft Stores. As an added benefit, Surface Plus will also get you a 30-day, no-questions-asked return policy on your Surface, as well as a year of free in-store technical support.

In terms of cost structure, devices can be financed over an 18, 24, or 30 month period.

Office 365 for Business: For an additional $8.25 per user per month, businesses can enjoy the ultimate productivity experience on Surface.

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

In the education space, Microsoft's Surface devices face tough competition from Google's (goog) Chromebook barebones laptops, which account for over half of the 12.6 million PCs shipped to USA schools in 2016, according to a report by GeekWire.
