For example, the cheapest Surface Pro with a price tag of $799 can be paid off at $33.29 per month for 24 months, which is a lot lighter on the pocket.

Surface Plus for Business likewise helps small and medium-sized businesses add multiple devices of different types to a single agreement, including even the 55-inch Surface Hub.

Microsoft's Surface line of tablet computers is now available to consumers, students and businesses through no-interest payment plans for up to 24 months under financing offers that mimic how smartphones have been sold to consumers for years. Hopefully, the Surface Plus plan will inspire a more regular upgrade cadence among Microsoft's devices.

Presently, both the Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business programmes are U.S. exclusives.

Consumers are only offered a 24-month payment plan, which comes with 0% April, the post said.

The Surface Plus program is described by Microsoft as a "flexible financing" option available exclusively in the USA at Microsoft Stores and online at Microsoft.com. Customers will also be granted a 30-day return window, and can choose to avail the Microsoft Complete extended service plan. The Surface Laptop launched two weeks before the quarter ended, minimizing the impact on the company's quarterly results.

Microsoft rolled out the Surface Plus program, which will make it easier for users to own and upgrade Surface devices.

Microsoft has segregated the business package, calling it Surface Plus for Business, where it allows variable lease terms and upgrades every 12 months, notes CNET. The program offers flexible financing options that are created to help people take advantage of Microsoft's Surface lineup of PCs.

Device Protection: Surface Plus for Business offers peace of mind with the Microsoft Complete for Business extended service plan with accidental damage protection. Without any kind of announcement or other fanfare from Microsoft, the option to get the most high-end version of the laptop has disappeared from the online marketplace.

Surface Plus members also get what Microsoft calls "best in class" service and support from Microsoft Stores.

Those who finance under this program are given the option of upgrading their device after 18 months have passed, just like with a smartphone.
