The Surface tablet could already have hit a snag already after Microsoft has finally revealed just how much memory Windows 8 RT actually needs to operate
The Microsoft Surface tablet requires roughly 16GB of storage space to run Windows 8 RT revealing that in fact those who bought a 32GB Surface tablet will only have 16GB of free storage on their tablets.
Those who want the 64GB Surface will have also received the same drop in memory getting around 46GB of actual storage as opposed to the storage that is advertised on the side of the packaging.
While it's common practise for smartphone and tablet manufacturers to show total storage instead of the usable storage this seems like an odd omission considering the storage of the 32GB tablet is effectively halved.
The Surface does come with MicroSD which means the memory can be expanded greatly, something which the new iPad can't do and it's certainly true that Microsoft is pushing the use of SkyDrive as a means of alternatives storage.
