    It always amazes me how Microsoft try to behave like the market dominator whenever they enter a new sector.

    They're clearly aiming at the Wacom Finance program (also run via Klarna, also 20% interest on missed payments), except Wacom offer more than one plan and you keep the devices at the end of the loan period. Or sell them on Ebay for 50% rrp like everyone else does to cover the deposit on the upgrade.

    I'm not really sure what the appeal of paying for three and a half years to use two devices for eighteen months each is, especially with a six month period of overlap where you pay for two finance deals. Even if the Surface Studio was superior to Cintiqs (it isn't) this wouldn't exactly be an alluring offer. Oh well, some schmuck somewhere is sure to take it up.
