Remember that apps won't install to microSD. Could be a big problem on the 32GB Surface if you are going to use it for gaming

I vote 64Gb version. Reason being >>

Surface RT:

  • The 32 GB version has approximately 15 GB free hard disk space.
  • The 64 GB version has approximately 44 GB free hard disk space.

    Surface Pro:

    • The 64 GB version has approximately 29 GB free hard disk space.
    • The 128 GB version has approximately 89 GB free hard disk space.

    15Gb is not really enough for a tablet in my opinion, I have an Android tablet with only 16Gb (~12Gb usable) and that fills up fast and I don't really have that much on it either.

Just add a 64Gb SD card, and change the path for the apps to the card. Have a Google/Bing to see what you have to do.

Also, have a Google/Bing too about how to add Music/Photo's & Video to show up in the Metro apps when they're on the SD card.

Go for the larger unit as per the reasons above and the resale value will hold better for a bigger memory.

64gb....considering the space the OS and apps take up. I would opt for the 128gb model myself.

And is this RT or Pro?

    Agreed here. I would go for the 64GB version.

I'll probably go for the larger version, then use an SD card for movies and such as 32GB would be plenty (for the SD card).

Thanks for the input :D

Unless you're installing apps excessively, you won't be filling up 15 GB worth. For files it's much cheaper to buy a microSD card separately. I got the 32GB and i still have 11GB free so haven't even had to get an SD card even.
