Microsoft offers to PAY YOU to trade in your old computer for a Windows 10 device
And yes, Stateside fanbois – your Apple gear is worth more
...If a customer is willing to shell out at least £499 on a PC running Redmond's latest operating system, then the company said it would stump up £100 to encourage holdouts to upgrade.
The cashback offer falls to £50 for Windows 10 devices in the £349 to £498.99 price range, and drops to £30 for new PCs carrying a price tag of between £249 to £348.99, Microsoft said.
...Windows 10 device purchasers who cough up more than $599 can trade in a laptop and receive $200 from Microsoft. But, amusingly, fanbois who pay the same price for a Windows 10 device can swap out their MacBook for $300.
Yup, it's official, Microsoft sees more value in Apple gear
