Microsoft offers MacBook Air to Surface Pro trade-in program

This weekend, Microsoft Stores launched a trade-in program to encourage sales of the new Surface Pro 3, but the trade-in promotion named only a single device: the MacBook Air, at a value of “up to $650” toward any Surface Pro 3 purchase. At the lowest specification, that trade-in amount would let buyers walk out of a Microsoft Store with an Intel i3 Surface Pro 3 for as little as $150.

My reaction when reading this:



  • LOVE IT! LOL. Made my day. Thx for that. 🙂

    When I first read this I thought it said MBP and I have an old one [2010 model] not getting used so was going to try it out but it isn’t an Air so nah.

      I’ll gladly take that MacBook Pro off your hands!

    My new ringtone, thank you.

  • Sam Doohickey

    They might have better luck peddling them to NYC tourists from a sidewalk card table.

  • Terry Maraccini

    Could you hypothetically put your macBook Air in a room, and then collect that air in a balloon and then get MSFT to give you $650?

  • What is more sad? Samsung’s pathological need to mention Apple’s products in its ads or Microsoft’s Apple targeted trade ins?
