Microsoft has revealed exactly how much free space new Surface owners are left with after taking into account Windows RT and system-related files. For the 32GB version of the new tablet, users have access to only 16GB of storage, with the remaining half taken up by Windows recovery tools, Windows RT, Microsoft Office, and built-in apps.
That is just amazing, though I guess it shouldn’t be that surprising. You’ve got to assume that you’re going to lose some space to the OS, but to lose half of it before you even get to installing your own apps / content is just insane.
