Microsoft Surface Pro to have far less usable space than expected
| by Nishtha Kanal |
If you’re planning to buy the Microsoft Surface Pro, be warned. Microsft has strangely decided to not let users have access to a lot of space: the 128GB version of the tablet will have only 83GB of usable space, while the 64GB version will have a paltry 23GB of usable space out of the box, according to an official statement. This means that approximately 41GB to 45GB of space will be gobbled up by the Windows 8 OS, built-in apps and a recovery partition.
Windows 8 by itself needs a lot more space than Microsoft’s earlier systems. The newer OS is better-used on machines that have anywhere between 256GB to 1TB of free space. Having a light-weight 64GB machine that runs Windows 8 will just not cut it now. It will probably explain why there are not too many 64GB Windows 8 machines available.
The tablet will also have 4 GB of RAM. Surface Pro will have two cameras on the front and the rear, both of which will be 720p HD LifeCams with TruColor technology. The sensors found in Surface Pro will include an ambient light sensor, an accelerometer, a gyroscope and a compass.
