"Ignoring the 64GB model, which nobody should really buy"–––––Then why sell it? If you have a configuration which isn't useful, don't put it out there to confuse consumers. The 64GB MacBook Air is a hugely popular model so if they are like products... shouldn't the 64GB Surface be similarly popular?–––––"Essentially they are identical, give or take a couple of GB's and if you move the recovery partition to a USB the Surface Pro actually trumps the MBA by 5GBs."–––––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?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.
