23GB out of 64GB

By Norman Chan

Just 36% of the SSD available, unless you repartition.

Speaking of the Surface Pro, Microsoft has confirmed with the Verge that the 64GB model of the tablet/laptop will only have 23GB available to the user. The 128GB model will have 83GB available. That's 36 and 65 percent capacity, respectively. Users will be able to delete the recovery partition to claim more space, or use external USB drives or microSD cards to store files. Along with not bundling the Surface Pro with a Touch/Type Cover, not putting the recovery data on a USB stick for customers is another misstep in this product launch. Every little bit counts.
