re: Microsoft Sued Over Surface Storage Claims
The lawsuit is not as ridiculous as some posters suggest. Yes, most consumers with a modicum of savvy understand that a portion of the total storage capacity is occupied by the device's operation system, pre-installed apps, etc. But a 50% reduction is borderline ridiculous and likely far in excess of what even savvy consumers would guestimate when determining which model suits their storage needs. If you disagree with this assessment, then consider an example where consumer-usable available storage was only 10% of advertised capacity. Would that be actionable unless the seller made the situation clear before purchase? If so, then we're simply left to argue about what's reasonable.
