The financing for Surface Plus for Business comes from a different company, New York-based LiftForward. If you go with the least-capable Surface Pro 2017, you end up with an m3 processor, 4 GB, 128 GB storage, built-in graphics and a Standard one-year limited warranty - for $799, or $33 per month.

Read the entire schedule of events and additional information at the Microsoft in Education website.

Microsoft always has a collection of deals at this time of the year to assist students however, in addition to the normal collection of stuff they are announcing a new program that can help students begin the year with a new Surface device.

To align with this sale, Microsoft is also introducing Back to School Live, a new series that is created to help teachers get ready for the new school year.

In both cases, at the end of the 24 months, you end up paying for the machine at a zero-percent rate.

Microsoft Store benefits: All customers who shop at Microsoft Store enjoy access to benefits like a 30-day hassle free return policy, a Surface training and health check as well as a year of free in-store support and technical assistance.

Flexible Terms: Businesses can choose flexible 18, 24, or 30 month periods, with the ability to upgrade devices after just 12 months on a 24-month term (after 18 months on the 30-month term). For an additional $8.25 per user per month, businesses can enjoy the ultimate productivity experience on Surface. The number of devices under the agreement can also change during the middle of the term as well, the post said. On the, uh, surface, the Surface Plus plan for individuals looks quite inviting: A new Surface Pro 2017, for example, only costs $34 per month for 24 months; Surface Laptops run $42 per month, and Surface Books $63 per month.

Surface Plus and Surface Plus for Business is ownership, re-imagined. You can upgrade to a new Surface device in 18, 24 or 30 months.
