The push to boost Surface adoption comes amid declining sales of Microsoft hardware for the past three quarters. Subject to credit approval, regular consumers looking into Surface Plus will be able to purchase Surface hardware on a 24-month plan with 0 percent April.
Surface Plus for Business lets SMBs add as many devices as needed, and a mix of models, to a single agreement.
Small and medium sized businesses, meanwhile, can enjoy Surface Plus for Business. Businesses can also expand or reduce their device fleet mid-term. For an extra $US8.25 per device per month, Surface Plus business buyers will also get the Office 365 suite.
It's unclear how much money people will save through the upgrade because it depends on the kind of Surface device involved.
