Surface Pro Available Storage Space

Ben Gilbert, Engadget:

That 64 GB, $800 Microsoft Surface Pro you plan on buying next week? Maybe you should temper your storage expectations a bit, as the base model actually only allots 23 GB of that space for use. The larger 128 GB version offers a bit more space at 83 GB, but is still losing a massive 45 GB of space to the full Windows 8 operating system and various included applications.

There’s no such thing as “no compromise”. Every design decision involves some element of compromise.
