In response to the popularity of its Surface products in education, Microsoft has announced a new dedicated Surface warranty program for schools and other educational institutions. Called "Surface Complete for Education," the program is meant to be flexible and comprehensive enough to make deploying and managing Surface devices in an education environment much easier.
Complete for Education is a warranty offering designed to give schools and educational institutions access to accidental damage protection, claims sharing, exclusive end-user device training tailored to education, and onboarding resources. In the U.S., Surface Complete for Education will start at $225 USD for Surface Pro 4 and $359 USD for Surface Book. Pricing will vary in additional markets based on purchase volume.
According to Microsoft, the new warranty program will be available in the U.S. starting tomorrow, September 15. As for other markets, the program is set to expand internationally starting on September 30.
