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?

A 32GB iPad has 28GB available while a 32GB Surface has 16GB. Can't you understand that at some point it becomes false advertising?

In many reviews I've read one can read that the Surface is cheaper than the iPad by $100, the 32GB Surface being priced as the 16GB iPad which is seen by many as a clear advantage. Problem is that the 32GB Surface should be compared to the 16GB iPad in which case the price advantage disappear.

If this is fair advertising for you, fine, but many won't agree.
