"If you have a Mac but want to experience the ultimate laptop with on-screen touch, Surface and Microsoft Store are here for you," Microsoft announced on the company's blog Thursday.
However, the campaign, called "Trade In, Trade Up", is not about handing out cash. Instead, Microsoft will provide a discount on its newest Surface product line, which includes a laptop, a tablet and a 28'' desktop device that can also be turned into a very large tablet, since all of the products feature trademark touch screen functions — an alternative to MacBook's newest Touch Bar feature.
"To be eligible for trade-in, you must own the qualifying device, device must power on, battery must hold charge and not be required to be plugged in to operate, and be in fully functional, working condition without broken/missing components, cracked display/housing, liquid damage, modification(s) or have device warranty seal broken to be considered working. Cannot be password protected, and include original chargers/accessories. Must contain hard drive," Microsoft's company website says.
The offer is only valid until November 7 and the program covers only the US and Puerto Rico.
