Microsoft has made a number of announcements today to show its commitment to business users who utilize their line of Surface tablets. The company assured users that it will be providing long-term support.
Microsoft introduced a new support bundle “Microsoft Complete for Business” wherein it will be offering a three-year extended warranty, accidental damage protection, setup support, and faster exchange service. It also announced a “laptop replacement” bundle, where it is offering $150 off when you purchase a new Surface Pro 3, Type Cover, and Docking Station together.
In addition, the company also announced that all the Surface Pro 3 tablets will be upgradeable to Windows 10 when the operating system releases next year. As far as company's current portfolio of Surface accessories are concerned, it also asserted that all the existing accessories are forward compatible, which means that they will work on the next generation Surface tablets.
"Enterprise-class device that can deliver great end user productivity. Microsoft is putting its full and sustained support behind the ongoing Surface program as one of a number of great hardware choices for businesses large and small.” - Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella
Additionally, it may bring a smile to many faces to hear that the Surface Pro 3 qualifies the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star Program for computers. The company says that many of its clients prefer devices that meet such criteria, and with Surface Pro 3, that should help them reach their goals.
