Microsoft, Lenovo, Introduce 'Pay As You Go' Computer
"Microsoft Corp. and Chinese-based computer manufacturer Lenovo have decided to kick off market trials for pay-as-you-go purchases of computers in China and India, reports AFP.
Thanks to pay-as-you-go purchases, buyers will be able to purchase Lenovo PC for almost half its retail price. Not only that they will be able to pay off the balance over time as well. For that they will have to purchase pre-paid cards from Lenovo.
Users will get a chance to purchase a predetermined number of usage hours. Once the balance for the computer is paid, they won’t have to purchase the pre-paid cards any more."
