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?

I think all my music albums I have come (in flac) to about 1 gig.


You have a seriously small music collection. My MP3 collection is over 64 GB (believe it comes out to 17 days worth of music when loaded fully into Clementine). Other have even larger collections.

At 720p I think I can get about a 10 hours of video on the thing depending on the codec being used.


So, if you load it full of videos, where do you store the music? Or pictures? Or documents?

If you store everything in "the cloud", then how do you access your data when you're camping outside of cell range? Or on a train without cell/wi-fi? Or on a plane without cell/wi-fi? Or on a cruise? Or any of the other times/areas without coverage?
