Not Quite as Advertised

Marco Arment, on the news that the “64 GB” Microsoft Surface Pro will have just 23 GB of free space:

If your computer’s “1 TB” hard drive has 50 GB of preinstalled software and unusable space, you still have 95% of its space for user storage, which is hard to complain about. But advertising a “64 GB” Surface Pro that only has 35% of its space available to the user is a very different story.

A solid proposal for a law to correct this, too.
