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?

Then don't buy a device that pretty much needs to be connected to the cloud.

I don't see people making the same argument against ChromeBooks.

That's because the chromebooks are marketed as pure cloud devices. The Surface however is marketed as a direct competitior to the iPad and Android tablets.

Besides, ChromeOS wants 4 Gb but actually uses only < 1Gb for the OS last time I checked.
