Windows "Microsoft's Surface Pro tablet, due on February 9th, will have a smaller amount of storage space than expected. A company spokesperson has confirmed to The Verge that the 64GB edition of Surface Pro will have 23GB of free storage out of the box. The 128GB model will have 83GB of free storage. It appears that the Windows 8 install, built-in apps, and a recovery partition will make up the 41GB total on the base Surface Pro model." Oh Microsoft.

Wait until the user discovers that there is no built-in Wifi, it requires a full size USB dongle

I think you mean 3G radio, right? Shipping this without Wifi would be suicide.

Without wifi, MS wouldn't have enough cable to hang themselves with.
