    I'd like to know how many users have 32GB free disk space at their disposal in their computers.
    Condolences to most tablet users.

    I would need 32GB disk space to install 1903?
    NUTS!!!
    This dual boot desktop has a 500GB SSD drive on it and is my production machine. The hard drive is divided into roughly half, with Production on one partition and Insider Build on the other. I have 172GB space left on Production and 182GB space left on Insider. Both partitions have Office 365 and all the other apps I use on a daily basis installed.

    I do have a 1 TB Data drive installed, with 758GB free space; ain't gonna fill that one up anytime soon.

    All you saw was the CHEAP price just like all the others that fall for one of those things.

    Probably. I was looking for a laptop to use while traveling, and that was within my price range. Won't make that mistake again.

    I no longer will buy anything with less than a 500GB drive, although I know things are just fine with a 120GB drive. Just my experience with those 32GB jobbies.
    Wynona,

    Whilst I have had to add additional drives for my own files & my collection of radio recordings, my 64GB built-in drive has been fine for the OS & applications on my tablet. Half of it is free space despite having 64-bit Windows [Ver 1809 at the moment], Office 2007, various picture-audio-video recording-playback-editing applications as well as scanning & OCR utilities and Acronis TI.

    I was able to put in a 128GB SD card for my own documents and I added a keyboard with two USB connections for my 256GB USB stick & my WiFi card [the built-in one being useless].

    This was all an experiment for me. My major conclusions so far have been
    1 I can take the tablet-with-keyboard anywhere [it even fits in the big poacher's pocket in my coat]
    2 Never to buy anything else from Chuwi. They cannot even provide all the correct drivers for their own hardware. They ignore support emails.

    All the best,
    Denis

    David, I made the mistake of buying one of those "32GB" computers. When I tried to update it to the next Build of Windows 10, it told me there wasn't enough space. In fact, it couldn't handle both Windows 10 and Office 365. I thought there was something wrong with the machine, so took it back and got another one. That one did the same thing, so I took it back and got my money back.

    I no longer will buy anything with less than a 500GB drive, although I know things are just fine with a 120GB drive.

    Just my experience with those 32GB jobbies.
    I have a seldom use MS Surface 3 with 128 GB storage.
    I can use it if I have to.
    I can also switch to my 8.1 Android TV box computer should I decide to say bye-bye to MS.
