Microsoft Will Give You $200 For Your Aging Laptop—Or $300 If It’s a Mac.

The only thing the Microsoft Store loves more than a trade-in deal is a trade-in deal for Apple devices. If you’re considering buying a new Windows 10 laptop, Microsoft has just announced a promotion that might push you over the edge: when you buy a new computer, it’ll give you $200 if you hand over your current Windows laptop, or $300 if it’s a MacBook. Beginning Monday, Microsoft fans in major cities from Atlanta to Vancouver will be able to get a first-hand look at the new Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, and refreshed Microsoft Band. The event, dubbed Microsoft Device Night 2015, will include hands-on time with the devices, as well as demonstrations, a Q&A with Microsoft device pros, and food and drink.

The impact on you at home: Device Night is meant primarily as a way for retail professionals, such as computer shop owners and tech support pros, to get acquainted with the new devices. The laptop you send can’t be too bad either: it has to be under six years old, with a minimum screen size of 11.6 inches, and it also has to actually work. As usual, it’s not as simple as sliding your old laptop across the counter for a rebate while you purchase a new one, and you’ll have to front the entire cost of your new PC before receiving the value of your trade-in.

First, the new Windows 8.1 or 10 PC you’re buying must have a purchase price of $599 or more, it cannot be running Windows Pro, and you have to buy it at a Microsoft Store in the U.S. or Canada between now and October 20, 2015. Recent years have seen the company offer $200 for iPads traded in against a Surface, $100 for PS3 owners switching to the Xbox One, $650 off a Surface Pro 3 in exchange for a MacBook Air, and $200 gift cards for a traded-in iPhone. Once that’s done, you will receive your payment “within 28 days of validation of your claim.” Microsoft does not clarify in what form you’ll get your payment, but it appears to be an electronic cash deposit in your bank account. The story behind the story: Microsoft’s trade-in offer is an appeal to boost retail sales and win over more Windows 10 converts before the holiday season kicks off in a few weeks.

With so many XP and Windows 7 PCs floating around, a special trade-in offer aimed at regular Windows users would’ve been a good way to move more people to Windows 10.
