    I'll take the Microsoft-Complete-Extended-Service so I think of a cheaper i5/126 device.

    My tasks and needs:
    - using Office, especially OneNote,
    - writing programs with VisualStudio (C++ and C#)
    - no gaming
    For my personal data I need approximately 30 GB.

    Would i5/128 GB be more or less enough or rather not enough.

    Thanks

    You can always insert a 64 or 128 GB 90 MBps SD card if you need some additional space or a USB SSD.

    Unlike some tablets, you have an infinite amount of on-board storage because of the microSD slot and the microSD cards are getting very reasonably prices.

    You also have access to tons of online free storage using Box, DropBox, OneDrive and on and on.

    It should be enough, I have 128GB on my SP1. I also use 64GB microSD. One thing people also needs to do is a better house keeping.

    If you buy office now you get 1tb on onedrive. for students, that's $80 for 4 years. a great deal.
