Microsoft Faces Lawsuit Over Surface Storage

Andrew Sokolowski has sued Microsoft over the storage limits on its new Surface tablets. The Los Angeles man quickly filled up his tablet and discovered that the the 32 GB edition has half the space most users would expect.

Here’s an excerpt from the suit: “Microsoft continues to mislead consumers by representing that its Surface RT tablets are equipped with either 32 GB or 64 GB of storage space while concealing, omitting and failing to disclose that approximately 16 GB of that space is not available storage space that the purchaser can access and use to store his or her own files.”

Microsoft has not concealed the issue. They created a chart on their website showing how much space you can find on its new tablets.
