    Microsoft will pay you $650 to ditch your MacBook Air for a Surface



    No matter how many updates Microsoft makes to its Surface tablets, it just hasn’t been able to live up to its promise of killing the iPad and MacBook Air in one swoop, but now Redmond is ready to try another tactic — buying you out.

    Microsoft announced that starting today, MacBook Air owners can walk into any Microsoft retail store and trade-in their Apple machine for $650 of store credit toward the purchase a Surface Pro 3, which Microsoft swears can replace your laptop, because you know, it’s got Office.

    The Surface Pro 3 was revealed last month with a gigantic 12-inch screen, up to 512GB of storage, a stylus and Microsoft’s slim keyboard cover. Prices start at $79,9 which would put your total bill around $150 if you trade in your MacBook Air for the baseline model. To get the same specs as a baseline MacBook Air though you’re looking at a bill of $1128.99.

    Trade-in values for each MacBook Air may vary depending on the condition, according to the terms of Microsoft’s deal, and you can only redeem it at a Microsoft Store.

    MacBook Airs used as trade-ins must power on and off, as well as not suffer from water damage or cracked screens. Oh, and don’t even think about trying to trade in that busted MacBook Air for a new Xbox One. Microsoft says the fronted cash can only be used on its big ass tablet.

    So, Microsoft offers this paltry amount of money to the one group of people who are the least likely to switch from their preferred platform to an inferior operating system?! Wowsers!
    True nobility lies not in being superior to another person, but in being superior to our previous selves.
