Hi,  I have about 50GB of family photos that I would like to have on a Surface 2 if I buy a one.  I won't have the PC for very long and all of these photos are on skydrive. 

 

For those who have a Surface RT, should I buy a 64GB Surface 2 or a sdcard?

The 64GB will only give you 45-50GB of available space for apps and storage. You should put them on a microSD card or just access them from Skydive.

I vote SD card.  I was worried about it myself and added a 64Gb SD card.  Turns out, I rarely use the SD card because I have SkyDrive.

My opinion is backup your photos to an external source (harddrive, flashdrive, microSD) and copy them to Skydrive. Let the Surface 2 use Skydrive and keep the photos off the Surfaces' memory.

 

If you're wanting to use some of the photo's for backgrounds, copy those photos to the Surface.

I still vote for an SD card. You may be at a location where you can't get reliable WiFi access and still want to show someone a photo.

Agreed, sync what you absolutely must have.  Bring a couple of movies on a flight, etc.  Otherwise, SkyDrive is your best friend.  Go for a new keyboard too!

Hi all,  I went to the Microsoft store and picked up a surface 2 64GB. 

 

When I called the store they told me they were out of stock of the 64GB model.  When I was there they also said they were out of stock, even after they "checked".  However, after getting dinner I went back into the store to buy and they asked which model I wanted and they sold me the 64GB.  Kinda weird.

 

I had to get a purple type cover 2 from best buy.
