One company wants you to ditch your Macbook so badly, it's willing to pay you to do it! For just a couple of weeks, Microsoft is offering Apple customers the ultimate trade-in program. In an effort to get people to give up the tried and true Macbook, Apple users can exchange their laptops for credit towards a new Microsoft Surface Book or Surface Pro.

Microsoft is accepting a variety of models and, depending on which Macbook you turn in, you could get up to $650 off! That's enough money to entice even the biggest Apple loyalist!

The process is pretty simple. First, visit the Microsoft website to determine the trade in-value of your Macbook and then just hand over your machine, wiped of any memory of course.

Then Microsoft will send you an email containing a promo code that you'll use at checkout when you're buying your new Microsoft laptop.

Microsoft's war against Apple has already included a buy-back program for iPads and iPhones, hoping to get customers into Windows based products. The Macbook is just another frontier for these computer giants to battle over.

Trade-ins have happened with cars and cell phones for years. It's about time computers joined in!
