Microsoft will pay up to £100 for your old MacBook
In a bid to encourage customers to make the switch to a Windows 10 machine, Microsoft has launched a promotion going by the name of Easy Trade Up. To qualify you’ll need to buy (or have bought) a new Windows 10 machine between 6 October and 27 October. Depending on the value of the new device, you may qualify for up to £100 in cashback.
The device you trade in has to be a maximum of six years old, can be running any operating system, must have a working battery and power supply, and have a minimum display size of 11.6 inches.
As well as the UK, a similar offer is running in the US, Canada, India, Brazil, Taiwan, France and Germany. In the US version of the sale, more cash is up for grabs if you’re trading in a MacBook ($300 instead of $200), which neatly demonstrates Microsoft’s intention to grease the wheels of change and pull customers away from Apple. This specific offer doesn’t seem to be available in the UK however.
