    I speculate because they were never intended to be a PC replacement. They weren't expecting people to store pictures, music, movies and such on these devices. They are intended more as web consumption devices, they need to be able to check facebook, email, etc.

    I just took a look at my surface pro 128GB at work and it has 78.3GB free.

    That's after I put the stuff on it that I use. Things like Office, etc. But then again, I don't really see much value in the Surface, so I don't use it much. I'd much rather use my Dell Latitude 6430u ultrabook. Far more useful to me.
