I purchased a Thinkpad Tablet (64GB) yesterday and soon realised that the RAM and storage were lacking. The TPT is advertised as having 1GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. However, under settings the total RAM is shown to be 620MB and storage is 55.5GB. I understand that actual figures are usually lower than what is advertised, but I feel ripped off in this case. The RAM is only 62% of what it should be and storage space is 13% short. I can probably live with the reduced storage but the amount of RAM just seems unacceptable.
What I'm wondering is, does anyone else get similar figures? Or am I just looking at the wrong figures?

You've asked the age old question ppls usually have wrt their hdds. Manufacturers count 1000 kilobytes = 1mb An operating system reads 1024 kilobytes = 1 MB which I think has something to do with how binary works. Therefore your system will always show less than what manufacturers list. Its not some conspiracy and is common. There is also some cases where you get x amount of space but the system reserves y amt and therefore doesn't show that unusable partition.
but to answer your question my 32 gb shows as 26.61gb
