LA lawyer sues Microsoft over Surface storage claims

Microsoft Surface Storage

In an apparent attempt to become a hero for people who have way too much time on their hands, Los Angeles-based attorney Andrew Sokolowski is suing Microsoft (MSFT) because the Surface tablet doesn’t deliver as much hard drive space as advertised. Per CBS News, Sokolowski is upset because his purported 32GB Surface only really has 20GB of usable storage since more than one-third of the hard drive is taken up by Windows RTMicrosoft Office and several preloaded apps.

Sokolowski’s attorneys claim that Microsoft has “buried” details on the Surface’s actual storage even though company representatives publicly acknowledged the tablet’s storage shortcomings on a Reddit chat last month. For its part, Microsoft said it was confident that “customers understand the operating system and pre-installed applications reside on the device’s internal storage thereby reducing the total free space.”
