    Here's a head-scratcher for you guys today. What do you think of this one? Is this guy justified or just wasting the court's time?

    Wasting the court's time and the taxpayers money. Nothing new about the OS taking up some of the total capacity.

    Just goes to show that being a lawyer dose not mean you are inteligent.
    It dose prove that people that do not understand a technology should not buy into it without doing a bit of learning first.

    Or maybe it just reinforces that all lawyers are slimey ambulance chasers (no offence intended to lawyers here) ;) It is probably a calculated move to get a settlement to go away.

    While I'm not going to sue over it, I was lied to my the Microsoft employee about how much storage would be available in the device. Could have checked for myself, but they were there to answer questions. Not a huge deal so far, but it is annoying none the less.

    I totally agree with this. It's very misleading and that's why on day 2 of owning my Surface when I received it on the 28 of Oct I called Microsoft to complain. If you buy an iPad 16gb you really get 13.4gb a Surface however takes half, very different from it's competition but doing the same thing. I just believe if your getting 32gb you should get close to that. It annoys me enough to want to sue as well.

    another lawsuit

    Isn't there a thing called common sense anymore. Maybe this guy should have read the sales blurb before he bought. I suspect he did and bought the device as an excuse to stick it to Microsoft. Disclaimer in case of law suit - Obviously this is only my opinion.
