Microsoft Surface available disk space

Engaget reports that the Microsoft Surface Pro requires 45 GB of disk space for the OS and pre-installed apps, leaving with you just 23 or 83 GB available for the 64 and 128 GB models respectively. By comparison OS X Mountain Lion requires 8 GB of space and iOS only 2.5 GB.
