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?

Nope, seriously are people really going to use these devices without another piece of kit that has plenty of space?


What's the point with a highly-mobile device if you're going to be lugging all kinds of extras along just to make it useable? I think you're missing the point.

Seriously, where do you store all your music and videos on the go? You have make space in some way for it. Even if you are constantly connected to the cloud, imagine how that is going to make your data caps suffer when you are constantly streaming.

Suggestion: Buy a device with the specs you want and need (if available. If not don't buy it or accept that it's not all you wanted.)
