What To Look For In Microsoft Surface Tablets

Microsoft has become a sure winner by providing the customers with ample choices in the tablet market, and has often been able to drive competitors to envy. But at times some products of Microsoft have caused problems to the customers, and one such product is the 128 GB version of Microsoft Surface Pro, which has 83 GB of free storage out of the box, while the 64 GB version of Microsoft Surface Pro has 23 GB of free storage out of the box. Microsoft was able to give the innovative USB 3.0 port for connectivity with a lot of storage options, including external hard drives, and USB flash drives. The pre-loaded SkyDrive that comes with Surface gives you up to 7GB of content storage on the cloud, for free. The device has a micro SDXC card slot that lets you extend storage capacity to 64GB. The device has an innovative option where the customers can create an external backup bootable USB, and delete the recovery partition for extra storage.
The Microsoft Surface RT tablet should be purchased only after long deliberation, keeping in mind the requirements of the customers. Though being an entry-level tablet, it is designed to run fairly large apps like Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk, AutoCAD and other similar programs. And this has identified to be the main problem with the entry level device, and tends to tease the customers’ peace of mind over time. This concern can lead you to taking proper advice from the Microsoft surface help team, before making the purchase choice.
The retail value of the 64GB Surface Pro model is $899, while the 128GB Surface Pro sells for $999. By wisely spending $100 more, the prospective user can take really good advantage of the extra 60GB of internal storage, or 2.6 times the storage capacity of the entry-level model. The difference in the price is not the only thing that substantiates the comparison between the two very expensive devices but it can be easily justified by the benefits that it provides in the long run, and in the immediate future as well.
As the Microsoft surface help suggests, users can regain some pre-occupied internal storage by deleting the recovery partition and using a bootable backup USB for backup. But that cannot be seen as the best and a sensible to solution to have more storage as I see it.
