    16gb or 32gb

    Hello. I was browsing the net to know whether i should get a 16gb or 32gb Ipad when I got into this forum. Hopefully you guys can help me.

    Actually I'm about to buy an Ipad for my 7 years old sister. She's a tech-freak. She loves playing with my ipod. She's also into Disney's, Harry Potter and Barbie movies.

    Basically the Ipad will be for apps and movies. You think if I'll pack the Ipad with the above mentioned movies, 16gb wont be enough? Or a 32gb seems to be so much for a 7 years old?

    I only have a 8gb ipod and its too much for me. Basically I only use it for app games.

    Help me please...

    I voted for the 32 because I feel that the apps are getting larger and since the iPad storage isn't expandable I would be scared of a 16. In fact I have the 64!

    Well, I'm a grown man and I got the 64GB version. I just can see giving even at 16GB iPad to a kid....won't a kid tear it up? I don't know much about little 7 yro, though.

    If you rip the movies from DVD, then you can get them smallish enough to fit on a 16GB iPad...you might just get her an iPad 2 and save $100. Or a used or refurbished one. Or you can get her an iPod Touch and put those movies on it.

    Or, get her a Kindle Fire! Much smaller but much better than a touch....

    You cannot go wrong getting 32 Gb, and may regret the 16 Gb. However, we have rules and polls have a place, so I am moving this.

    Depending on the quality settings but just estimate about 1gb for a 1 and a half hour movie. So remember that the 16gb iPad comes with the operating system and stock apps so 16gb is really around 13gb for you to load stuff on!

    My suggestion is to get a sturdy case and Apple Care Plus. I'm sure with good rules about care of the device and supervision, she will handle it just fine.

    I vote for the 16gb, save some money. I have about 50 movies and keep them on my PC, and just sync via itunes the ones I want to watch on the the pad. Doesn't take long to change them.

    CLOSING APPS: If an app has stopped responding or closes on launch, try the following: * Home screen * click the Home button twice * Tap and hold on the app * When it jiggles, tap the (-) to close it * Double-click the Home button and re-open the app

    Same here. If i want to go on travel and feel the need to watch movies i copy them from my 16GB SDcard to my iPad.
