Microsoft Announces Surface Plus For Business Program

Microsoft launches Surface Plus upgrade plan

Following the introduction of the Surface as a Service program previous year, which provided Surface devices to businesses on subscription plans, Microsoft has debuted a similar offering aimed at consumers.

-Dedicated Service & Support: Surface Plus offers best in class service and support from Microsoft Stores.

Microsoft's new subscription program, called Surface Plus, will be available starting later today through the Microsoft Store in person and online.

The plan encompasses every model of Surface, including the Surface Pro tablet/laptop hybrid, the Surface Studio PC, the Surface Book high-end laptop, and the new student-focused Surface Laptop.

Upgrade subject to device availability and eligibility requirements, including an account with Klarna, good standing, the return of the functional device to Microsoft in good condition, and new 24-month payment plan and credit agreement with Klarna.

The push to boost Surface adoption comes amid declining sales of Microsoft hardware for the past three quarters. Upgrades can be made after 18 months in the consumer plan, and users will be offered service and support from Microsoft stores, with the options to opt-in to the Microsoft Complete extended service plan.

The fine print: an interest rate of 19.99% kicks in after 24 months.

Make sure you have the Surface Dial connected via Bluetooth to your device.

Microsoft's Surface laptops are extremely choice, but they also carry a premium.

Device upgrades: Customers can upgrade to the latest Surface after just 18 months.

Business customers can select from any mixture of devices from the Surface portfolio, and can fold any number of those devices into a single single agreement, the post said.

Office 365 for Business:. If businesses choose the 30-month period, they can upgrade after 18 months.

Surface Plus for business adds additional features. Like the new Surface Laptop, the new Surface Pen was advertised as being available in multiple colors, in this case, Platinum, Burgundy, Black, and Cobalt Blue.
