The Surface Plus system also allows those registered to upgrade after 18 months if desired. The interest free period is described by Microsoft as 'promotional' and applies only to accounts with financing service Klarna held in good standing up to the 24-month period. If you can pay for the laptop in 24 months you are entitled to 0% April, for anything beyond 24 months it is 19.99%.

Those who finance under this program are given the option of upgrading their device after 18 months have passed, just like with a smartphone.
