    Microsoft Pro Storage issue easily solved.

    Ok finally found out what was going on with storage on Surface Pro, there is a recovery area which isn't needed at all which is taking a massive amount of space. You can easily move this off the system to a flash drive. If msft was smart they would have simply shipped recovery media in a small bootable flash drive in order to save face on the storage issue. What most people are also missing is you can buy a 64GB microSD card to expand memory and 128GB microSD cards are coming within 6 months. The pro will be a big hit in corporations

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • What storage issue? It has a USB port, SKIPPY.
      The 64 GB Surface with Windows RT has approximately 45 GB storage available for user content.
      If you do run out of space on your Surface, the following storage options are available:
      •USB flash drive or hard drive
      •microSD, microSDHC, or microSDXC memory card
      •Cloud storage using SkyDrive Less

    • If Microsoft was smart, they would have never produced these boat anchors in the first place.

      • There is nothing else on the market which competes in the space microsoft has just forged into, this is the first tablet which can be added to enterprise domains which of course brings enterprise security a huge issue with tablets out now. Second, complete integration of business / enterprise applications no juggling two devices, an ipad to play your music and email and then your laptop to connect to the corporate network and citrix/vmware servers. If this is over your head then you do nothing than sit a coffee shops all day looking hip with an overpriced email client which happens to play angry birds/hunger games and clunky typed emails.
