Windows "Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet, due on February 9th, will have a smaller amount of storage space than expected. A company spokesperson has confirmed to The Verge that the 64GB edition of Surface Pro will have 23GB of free storage out of the box. The 128GB model will have 83GB of free storage. It appears that the Windows 8 install, built-in apps, and a recovery partition will make up the 41GB total on the base Surface Pro model." Oh Microsoft.

Think of your average person, booting up and after a while realising that the available storage space is much less than he expects.
I'm pretty sure that he'll assume something is wrong.

It's very hard for me to comprehend how any of the people in charge at Microsoft gave their approval to this mess.
