    iOS takes up the 5 gb you are missing. My 64 is actually 57.

    Actually, some of the missing space is used internally by the solid state storage for its own purposes :)

    No different from a hard drive you loose 10% in formatting.

    When I purchased my 16 GB iPad 1, I foolishly asked the sales person whether the 16 GB would be available to the user. Being a true sales person, the answer was yes. I don't think that I was surprised to discover that this wasn't true.

    If you jailbreak your iPad you can always remove the operating system to free up space. It's not a recommended practice, though. :) More seriously, it has long been an industry practice to report storage capacity as unformatted and ignoring the space required for an operating system and other essential utilities. Sort of like publishing a price without tax and shipping.
