So Microsoft is boasting that their 32 gig Windows RT is $499 (without the sweet keyboard),the same price as the iPad, while having twice the hard drive space. What's bullshit is that the OS literally takes up 16 gigs of memory, so you only get to utilize 16 gigs of that hard drive. I'm not a defender of apple, and I'm not hating on the surface either. I just think it is ridiculous that Microsoft is selling their "32 gig" model, while you really only have access to half of that.
That being said I do think the Surface looks pretty cool, although I'm not keen on being an early hardware adopter so I will probably wait a while to get one. I just happen to think it is super lame to claim that it has 32 gigs of space (yes technically it does) while you only have access to half of that.
I'm just curious about how many of you knew about that. I feel like the average customer will buy one fully expecting it to have about 32 gigs available to them and will be a bit disappointed when they discover the truth.
