64GB Surface Pro will have less free storage 'out of the box', Verge says

Citing a Microsoft (MSFT) spokesperson, The Verge said that the 64GB edition of Surface Pro will have 23GB of free storage out of the box and the 128GB model will have 83GB of free storage. The Verge added, "It appears that the Windows 8 install, built-in apps, and a recovery partition will make up the 41GB total on the base Surface Pro model." Additional storage space can be created by "creating a backup bootable USB and deleting the recovery partition."
