    So already discounting Surface 3, even worst doing it in a way the communicates the Surface is not a tablet but laptop.

    As great as the new CEO is he really needs to doing something about marketing dept. It time to get rid of the whole department.

      Apple confirmed the current Mac Book Air was a failure before it even started shipping with a price drop, and that is on top for 30+ years of a failure product. They also take tradeins for all their other products, accepting PCs, phones, etc –
      Apple, proving they are a massive failure once again.

      • WPhan

        I do not care what Apple does or does not do, nor aside from a few fanboys who will never have the intelligence to understand, thinking beyond the decisions Microsoft does to create, promote and sale product will never add to the company success with a product.

        You been here before and all you can add is some insult to posters along with another diatribe how evil the media, other tech companies or any who does not agree with you are.

        Your just a troll always looking for fight under the guise of caring about MS.

        • nohone

          Oh no, I offended Apple. Quick, launch the personal attacks!

          • WPhan

            Troll you only offend reasonable and thoughtful people.

          • nohone

            I have read your posts before, they have been anything but reasonable and thoughtful. What we are seeing is called projection, you trying to claim your own behaviors are done by others.

            And as usual, the anti-MS crowd can’t find anything original or useful to add.

          • WPhan

            Keep trolling

          • nohone

            So trolling is now defined as writing on a Microsoft focused web site, in an article about a Microsoft product by laughing at and mocking Microsoft’s competition. We know you can’t stand it that someone likes something other than Apple. Your fragile little ego is hurt. You will survive.

    Ironic that Microsoft isn’t offering trade-ins for older Windows PCs. Mac’s hold their value better in secondary market.

    So Microsoft is admitting Macs are a better long term value.

    • Poecifer

      They’re trying to pull people away from Macs… Plain and simple.

    • GG002

      More like Microsoft values MBAs for their real value

    • PeteJustPete

      i still don’t understand microsoft’s strategy of selling the surface pro 3 as a laptop replacement and then charging extra for the keyboard.

  • Ruufus

    Where’s my Surface Pro trade-in credit?

    • XboxerOner

      Or Surface RT credit? I guess neither one is worth more then a MacBook Air :(
