Taking a cue from the smartphone industry, Microsoft's new Surface Plus program now provides flexible financing for both individuals and businesses. For those who don't want to pay all at once, you can also opt in to a monthly payment plan to ease the strain on your bank account. The tech titan is also allowing users to upgrade devices after 18 months, but only if the tablets are returned in "good condition". And customers can add the Microsoft Complete extended service plan to their monthly plan if they wish, too.

The Surface Plus program will launch today at 12:00 pm EDT. "Small and medium-sized businesses that are currently enrolled in the Surface Membership program will now enjoy the same enterprise-grade services and support under the Surface Plus for Business plan", the post said.
