Microsoft’s 64GB Surface Pro will only have 23GB of available space and the 128GB will have 83GB available
There is really no other way to describe this news as disappointing for Microsoft. I mean losing over 40GB to the OS and bloatware is unacceptable and to top things off as much as I like the Surface it’s overpriced!!!
