Microsoft selling Surface devices like hot cakes to businesses

If you are in the market for a computing device, Microsoft’s Surface is definitely worth examining.

While Microsoft started the concept of an in-between computer that sits between a desktop and a laptop, it is now reaping rich benefits, although initially taking off was admittedly rough. Although initially, the very concept of a Surface computer looked like a plaything, it has now become a major part of its business.

Sales of Surface devices have jumped by 38% to $926 million during the first quarter of 2017. Comparatively, in the previous year, Surface sales stood at $672 million

Microsoft has attributed the jump in sales to increased sales of the Surface Pro 4 and the Surface Book.

Noting the jump in sales, Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said, orders from businesses for 500 or more Surface devices have jumped by 70%.

With the Surface’s sales crossing the billion-dollar mark in early 2015, sales of the product line has grown steadily since.

In fact, it is very likely that Surface devices are positioned in a perfect spot: with the market satiated with tablets and laptops a convertible device is the need of the hour.
