Half your storage gone on Surface

Here’s how much hard disk space you have available out of the box:

The 32 GB version has approximately 16 GB free hard disk space.

That statistic makes me think that, with the 16 GB version, you have no free hard disk space left. Could that be?

The Surface RT only comes in 32 or 64 GB sizes...

sure. Which is plenty for internal apps. Slap in a 64gb card for more storage, if you want.

Surely it has no 'hard disk' at all? For 32GB it would be insane to use anything rotating.

Mind you, this is the same company that refers to a disk partition as a 'drive', so anything is possible.

I think they are trying to appeal to the unwashed masses who have no earthly idea what a solid state disk is.

On the other hand, the unwashed masses don't know what a hard disk drive is either.

It's a little worse and a little better than Microsoft says

The issue started when Sokolowski quickly ran out of storage capacity in his 32GB Surface after adding media files. After poking around, he realized that while the device has a 32GB drive, only 16GB of that capacity is available for users’ data. Thusly Microsoft is being sued for false advertisement, with the suit seeking class action status.
Note to Microsoft. Stop trying to use technical specifications in your naming and advertizing.

For example;
Model "Surface Below" Has approximately of 16 GB Free space.
Model "Surface Level" Has approximately of 45 GB Free space.
Model "Surface Above" Has approximately of 285 GB Free space.

Was this not covered before in a thread here? I thought it was but I could be wrong though.

Anyway, the OS and the included Office application on all Windows RT tablets takes up space.
