Surface Pro’s ’23GB of free storage’

Ops!

Seems Microsoft’s vaunted Surface Pro tablet, slated for February 9, will  only have 23GB of free storage.

“The Windows 8 install, built-in apps, and a recovery partition will make up the 41GB total on the base Surface Pro model,” says the Verge, adding Microsoft says users will be able to free up additional storage space by “creating a backup bootable USB and deleting the recovery partition,”

“ … but out of the box they’ll be left with as little as 36 percent of the advertised storage available. The storage situation is similar to Microsoft’s Surface RT tablet. The Windows RT operating system, that powers Surface RT, accounts for half of the 32GB disk space on the entry model.   However, the device “ supports USB 3.0 hard drives and microSDXC cards, so,  “there are ways to extend the storage,”  says the story.
