I would not buy the 64GB model, nor do I think others should. Many may prefer the 64GB model though."Saying the space isn't used because expert users can remove a system component which Microsoft felt was essential is sketchy. Comparing it to a MacBook Air without removing components which are clearly optional (iLife=5.5GB) is just dishonest."I don't know anything about iLife, but if it ships with the MBA isn't that the same as optional apps that ship with the surface? Shouldn't the comparison be storage out-of-the-box rather than after removing bloatware or configuring it to personal tastes?"The big question in my mind is why Windows ships with a repair partition at all? If it's a necessary part of the OS, then it should be counted. If it's not, why on earth did they burn 5GB on the system for it when the vast majority of users will have no clue how to remove it?"My guess is that most people would simply leave it in place. Only techies would want to remove it to a USB.
