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.

So...as long as no-one is complaining it's perfectly ok to cheat people. That's some seriously screwed up reasoning.

Basically, that's why we have consumer rights, regulations on misleading advertising and safety standards.
