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?

Lucas I can only hope you're being very ironic there.

You know full well that mobile connection costs dwarf local storage costs long term

don't be silly

You're speaking about 1st world's connectivity, but what about 3rd world ? Can they use a Surface tablet if they do not benefit from the cloud ?

No actually, its much more of a problem in the third world where the networks are that much more of a problem. My company had three different internet providers and still had sustained outages.
