Disk space on Microsoft Surface – 16 GB available on the 32 GB device

I really like the Microsoft Surface. Microsoft did a great job creating a device that is fun, fast and that really can be used to do stuff, unlike the iDevices.

A friend asked me about the Surface’s disk space, the 32 GB version of the Surface comes with only 16GB of available disk space. After that quite a few people asked me the same.

It took me about 5 minutes to find the answer, and after Binging the right combination of words I got the info we all want!
