32gb Thinkpad Tablet shows 56gb of usable space now?

I sent in my 183825u Thinkpad for service and just got it back(after almost 2 months) with a new motherboard...and now it shows to have 56gb of internal storage avalible?  The part number still shows right in the "about tablet" menu though.  Did I get a free upgrade? Smiley Very Happy

Seems like 8gb is a lot to keep locked away for system purposes...does that seem normal? I never looked at the avalible space before I sent it in

From my "16GB" i have left 12,15 for use.

 

 

First the 16GB are less in Computerbytes 

(I read 64GB =  58.8GB)

 

Second the system takes something .

 

 

So it seems you got a 64GB system Smiley Happy

 

 

Hope they will also have one left for me Smiley Wink

Hey, your post inspired me to realize that they upgraded me from 16 to 32 the second time I had to send mine in. Thanks Lenovo for that!

Hmmm... my 64GB is going in for repair this week - too bad they don't make a 128GB. Smiley Very Happy
