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?

But isn't it these tablet manufactures that keep saying the PC era is over, and a tablet is the only device you really need? In that case, give us terabytes of space of those devices too please!

Maybe, just maybe the reasoning is ?:

the cloud provides that terabytes of space.

But I have to admit, when I put stuff in the cloud. I do that encrypted.

I will NEVER trust my private and business data in a Cloud service. I have no idea how protected they are, do they scrub my data and sell it off to others etc. No thank you!!
