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

The tech titan is also allowing users to upgrade devices after 18 months, but only if the tablets are returned in "good condition". Or, if a Microsoft Store is not nearby, you also can enroll online starting at 9:00 AM PT today. After 18 months, you can upgrade to the latest Surface device, as long as you turn in your existing gadget and agree to a new 24-month payment plan for the new one.

Microsoft's new Surface Plus programs for consumers and businesses have flexible financing and additional support for Microsoft device customers.

Microsoft (MSFT) announced on Tuesday that it was starting a new Surface Plus program in the USA aimed at spreading the cost of the tablets over two years.

Microsoft wants the students to get the right Surface device and Surface Plus will help them.

Device upgrades: Customers can upgrade to the latest Surface after just 18 months. And customers can add the Microsoft Complete extended service plan to their monthly plan if they wish, too.

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

Microsoft Store benefits: All customers who shop at Microsoft Store enjoy access to benefits like a 30-day hassle free return policy, a Surface training and health check as well as a year of free in-store support and technical assistance.

Developed with Microsoft's N-trig technology, the new Surface Pen includes tilt detection, 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity, and just 21ms of latency, which prompted the company to declare it "the fastest digital pen on the planet" in May. The number of devices under the agreement can also change during the middle of the term as well, the post said.

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

Office 365 for Business can be added to the agreement for an additional $8.25 per user, per month.
