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.

It eats more battery since when you listen to music it seeks and reads around your SD while swapping to another.

Then 23G free isn't even plenty for apps either. Install Office, some games and full. Win8 doesn't allow to install apps and games to SDs or does it?

I assume there was no time left to optimize disk-size for Pro. Maybe to much other problems.
