Microsoft Surface Pro: Where's my storage?

By Richard Mallion
If you are planning on buying a Microsoft Surface Pro in a few weeks then you may wish to read the small print with regards to the memory/storage allocation.
That 64GB model, which is the base model,  actually only gives you 23GB of free space for use.
The larger 128GB version is a bit more generous, it gives you 83GB.
The reason? To make room for Windows 8.
I actually quite like the Surface product range but this does seem a bit excessive.
