Microsoft will offer you up to $300 to trade-in your old computer for a new Windows 10 PC

Microsoft is currently running a promotion called Easy Trade Up that sees the company offer up to $300 for trading in old hardware. Should you be on the lookout for a new Windows 10 PC, you'll want to check out this promotion to see if it can help you fork out for a more expensive solution. The company will offer up to $200 for an old laptop, or $300 for a traded in MacBook.

The promotion is available in Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Taiwan, UK and the US. For those of you in the US, only purchases over $599 at Microsoft Store qualifies for the trade-up deal, which will last until October 20. Microsoft will accept all-in-ones, laptop or 2-in-1, Apple MacBook or an iMac. The device you wish to trade-in needs to be under six years old and be in a working condition.

It's up to you whether you believe you'll receive more money for your old hardware using third-party services to sell directly. Be sure to check the website for more details and terms for your region.
