Well it looks like Best Buy is only selling the black models and only the 3G with AT&T according to their website as of right now. I was considering the white Verizon model because I think the white looks a little cleaner and Verizon has far better coverage in the places I tend to find myself in. However, I'm stuck with Best Buy since we have a Best Buy card and get the 18 month financing. But it is what it is.
So back to my question. In reading these forums I've discovered that I can keep all of my word files and such on my computer here at home and use a remote desktop app to access them all and even use Word to work on my writings. The more and more I think about it, the more and more I think I can go with the 16G model. The only things I'll actually be storing on my iPad2 are the apps themselves and maybe a movie or two when I go on vacation. I won't be storing any music on it, got my iPod for that (and how can I jog with an iPad2 tucked in my pocket?). Since I've paid the Best Buy card off I can get the 64G but I want accessories like the Zagg screen protector, the smart cover or another book style cover that will also turn off / turn on the machine, the keyboard / dock and of course Apple Care. I want the extra storage "just in case" (that's always my excuse) but I also want to save a little money so I can get the accessories I want. So I think I'm going to settle on the 32G.
With all those things in mind, how important is local storage to you? I just want to see what everyone else's reasoning is and how they are going to approach it.
