And since Microsoft's Surface RT costs $349, iPad users looking to upgrade their tablets or jump into the Windows 8 bandwagon will only need to fork $149. The speccy Surface Pro, on the other hand, is still pricey at $799. But for the price, you'll get Windows 8 Pro, a stylus pen, an i5 Intel processor, 4GB of RAM, and more.
The trade-in program ends on October 27. To enjoy the offer, the iPad must include a power cord and must not be password-protected. And, you'll need to avail it in select retail Microsoft stores.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
