"Samsung’s Ativ 500T Windows 8 tablet-laptop convertible has a number of strong points — including Intel’s new dual-core Clover Trail Atom SoC — but storage capacity certainly isn’t one of them. According to the Ativ Smart PC’s box, it comes with 64GB of available storage. In reality, after you factor in all of cruft, crud, and bloatware, actual available storage is less than half of that."
"The fully patched version of Windows 8 is 12.6GB. The swapfile, pagefile, and hibernation file come to 4.14GB altogether. Samsung installs another 2.4GB worth of software, including such beloved gems as Norton Antivirus. Some of the company’s choices are mind-boggling, given the limited free space."
"Some of the software, like Cyberlink PowerDVD, isn’t automatically junk, but including it here makes no sense. While it’s true that Windows 8 can’t play DVDs natively, the tablet doesn’t ship with a DVD drive. External DVD drives typically require 2x USB 2.0 connections; the 500T only has one. The chances that you’ll be playing a DVD on this tablet, in any configuration, is pretty small."
"32GB of useable space on a tablet advertised as offering 64GB is, in our opinion, false advertising. In a quick poll, most writers here in the ExtremeTech bunker said they’d be extremely unhappy with the situation; several would consider returning the tablet outright. Even if integrating its new high-end 128GB eMMC chips wasn’t an option, Samsung could have ameliorated the problem by shipping the 500T with a 16-32GB USB flash drive or a complementary MicroSD card."http://www.extremetech.com/computing/140997-samsungs-windows-8-ativ-convertible-grossly-misrepresents-available-storage
