Microsoft Surface

Opportunistic Deal: Trade in Your Apple MacBook for a Microsoft Surface

Many who watched today’s Apple event were disappointed. Apple announced a new app for TV called ‘TV,’ announced a refreshed MacBook with a Touch Bar (not a touch screen), and for some reason was hung up on improved volume (quantity of three-dimensional space) when extolling its new MacBook line-up specs.

The Apple event followed a day after Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 event in NYC where the software company announced hardware of its own (read about that HERE). I guess Microsoft felt that it did a much better job with their event because today – just after the Apple event – Microsoft announced a new deal where MacBook owners can track in their non-touchscreen laptops for a Surface Book or Surface Pro 4 both of which have touchscreens and come with free writing implements.

Here’s the deal:

Today, we are announcing a limited-time “trade up” offer to invite more people to experience Surface. If you have a Mac but want to experience the ultimate laptop with on-screen touch, Surface and Microsoft Store are here for you. Starting today, anyone in the U.S. can trade in their MacBook Pro or MacBook Air at a Microsoft Store or online for up to $650 off a Surface Book or Surface Pro.

*Offer valid from October 27, 2016 12:00AM PST, to November 10, 2016, 11:59PM PST, while supplies last. Available only in Microsoft retail and online store in the United States (including Puerto Rico).
