Microsoft's upcoming Surface Pro tablets will probably feature a bit less storage than you were hoping for. The 64GB model will only come with 23GB of free space, which means Windows 8, and all of the other stuff Microsoft pre-installs, will take up 41GB of space, which is more than 50 percent of the 64GB model's capacity.
In a lot of ways, that is pretty ridiculous. Microsoft had a similar issue with the Surface RT, in which Windows RT accounted for half of the 32GB model's capacity. Even still, that is only 16GB. Windows 8 will be taking up 41GB, or more than double that of Windows RT.
Microsoft has said you can free space by making a backup bootable USB drive and deleting the recovery partition. However, if you don't do that, you'll only have 36 percent of the advertized storage space available in the 64GB model. What are your thoughts on this?
