The 64GB Surface Pro Will Have Just 23GB of Usable Space

If you thought yesterday's news—that the 128GB Microsoft Surface Pro will only offer 83GB of usable storage—was bad, think again. The Verge has learned that the 64GB version will offer up just 23GB of space to the user.

It seems the Windows 8 install, built-in apps, and a recovery partition will consume 41GB of the total storage space, leaving just 23GB—that's 36 percent—of storage for the user. Perhaps it's time manufacturers started quoting available storage space in their ads, too? [Verge]
