Windows A California man is suing Microsoft, alledging that his Surface tablet did not provide the advertised amount of disk space. The 32G device has 16G of space for users, as the operating system uses the other 16G. The 64G Surface leaves 45G free for users. The case will turn on whether Microsoft has clearly explained to customers how much free space the Surface leaves for their use outside of the OS. How much disk space does your OS consume?

32 gig Surface is too small

16 gig is fine for a laptop or desktop OS. The problem here is that the cheaper Surface has only 32 gig total, leaving only 16 gig for user data (music, videos, Office files, etc).

Of course, the customer should have read the specs before he bought it. As far as I can tell from reading other articles on this lawsuit, the guy is a lawyer known for consumer rights activities. That's what his suit is really about... and he's suing on the basis of product misrepresentation in advertising.
