    After a month of use my only regret is that I went with the 32 GB device. I actually was not planning on using it as extensively as I have. It is a nice little device. Fantastic for travel and it really has replaced more of my laptop requirements than I thought it would have. Now I am just running into a memory issue. Not the end of the world, I am pruning podcasts and such, but I would really advise anybody to go 64 GB.

    I also felt that way at first, now in my third week the trick I found was management and an SD card.
    Have linked my Pics, Music, Videos, Docs, and Downloads to a 64 g SD.
    Keep my email app clean (delete un needed mail), run disk space once a week and hve more space than I started with 14.g

    I know what you mean! I'm running with only 8gb of free space on my drive right now and I've only had my Surface for 2 weeks! Managed to snag a 32GB Class 10 SD card though during black friday for only $16 thankfully. I've got too many Apps installed for my own good. Here is to hoping that Microsoft allows you to install Apps to the SD card soon...

    Does the speed class on the SD card make a noticeable difference when using it on the Surface? I was planning to buy a 64 gig and use it as my Picture/Music/Movie hub and I am curious if its worth the extra $$$.

    I haven't put much on it just yet to test, sorry. But with my other devices it does matter for sure.

    I've got a Sandisk 64GB microSDXC card in mine, on which I store movies, music, and documents like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. Everything runs smoothly, including the mp4 movies I "handbraked" and stored on the card. So, even though onboard storage will always be faster than an add-on card, in your real-life experience I don't think you'll see any difference.

    Thanks for the sound advice, based on experience.
