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?

The point is

The amount of stuff people are trying to fit on there is longer than the device can be used before a recharge.

Pretty much everyone I know who owns a laptop uses it in a similar way to a standard desktop machine in that they leave it plugged in all the time. And honestly, if I had a similar machine, I would do the same, because battery power sucks. In that case, the number of hours worth of audio or video means nothing other than the time you spend watching or listening to it.
