Oops! Never mind it's only water

As long as you have been making regular payments and haven't fallen behind, you will be eligible to upgrade to a brand-new device after 18 months.

The business version of the plan comes with other perks, including support for financing a 55-inch Surface Hub on top of all the other Surface devices, Office 365 for Business, device protection, and flexible terms - read all about Microsoft's Surface Plus plans at this link.

For example, a Surface Pro with Core m3 processor, 4 GB RAM, and 128 GB storage is $799, but with the Surface Plus program it's $33.29 a month for 24 months.
