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?

Regardless of who it is it's still wrong I'm afraid. Advertising storage space and then leaving a user with half of the advertised storage space is plain ridiculous.


But people are more likely to raeg at Microsoft.

Oh, and you're still a troll who frankly doesn't know what he's arguing half the time when he loses arguments. Hint: It's at that point that you stop typing.


Oh yes, last time if I remember correctly you were doing the old "I am going delibrately mis-interpret simple words like 'we' to make my argument work".

Unlike a lot of people on here, I have don't hide my real identity.

The very first comment on here was a troll, the article itself is a troll. I obvious troll back to make a point and everyone gets their nickers in a twist.

Your argument, whatever it was, is still null and void on that basis.

Errr, no. You made assertions you simply couldn't back up with examples, couldn't answer the question 'why'?, were out-argued, got your ass handed to you and you then eventually shut up. People who have that happen to them quite often then claim they were misinterpreted in order to try and salvage some pride.

Good for you. If you want to have your identity public, if I were you, I'd shut up.

Errrr, no. I'm afraid you can't just say what you like and have it be true - a flaw in your reasoning you haven't picked up yet. It's been explained why the article is relevant and why this simply wouldn't happen with any non-computer product. For some reason if it's computer related advertisers can get away with whatever they want.

You then trolled with a lot of nonsensical crap about the size of hard drives. You have no line of reasoning or argument. It's a case of throwing out random crap to have something to say.

No it isn't

Actually that didn't happen. I kept on asking the same question and you didn't answer it and deliberately missed the point.

At no point did I have my arse handed to me.

Unfortunately you don't get to tell me anything.

The guy is a lawyer trying to make a name for himself. Sorry if you plonking down what is a quarter of my monthly earnings it best to check the fact first that can be found on the website of the supplier of said product.

There is no black and white on this, even if you claim there is to be.

It is called a matter of opinion. I don't agree with your conclusion. The fact we are having this argument proves that.

Keep on throwing that word around ... doesn't make you right.
