re: Microsoft Surface Pro Storage Snafu: Does It Matter?
It'll be interesting to see how Surface Pro gets received and used. I can appreciate the viewpoint that says it's ludicrous to clog up 70% of the SSD with the OS, and that SD Cards are cumbersome additional steps that make the device more difficult than it should be. But if I also think about whether I'd enjoy using one, carrying an SD card or a flash drive doesn't seem like THAT big a deal. Inconvenient, sure, but not a deal-breaker. It makes me think of Canon DSLRs a little, which often look uninspired on paper but generally handle better than other options in practice. I'm not saying Surface Pro will end up similarly, with the device fitting a need so well that users overlook its lesser characteristics. In fact, I think it's more likely that a group of people is going to remain dismayed by the storage issue regardless. But I think Surface Pro can gain fans in certain quarters, and it'll be interesting to see how many.
