    Will 16GB be satisfactory?

    I am planning buying an iPad 2 in the next few weeks. Currently, the only major store that has any in my area is Walmart and they currently only have 16GB versions. I know that it will depend on how much I put on it in the end, but is this a good amount of space for this product? It might be the only one I can get so I am hoping that it is worth it.

    Just my 2 cents but if you're not planning on storing tons of movies on it, I think it'll be enuf; I bought the 16 gig version and I've never been pressed for space. Other things like apps, documents, pictures, music, etc don't take up that much space. Flicks, do. So ask yourself if you'll be using your pad to store tons of movies or not. Whatever your decision, I'm sure you're gonna love it; I do!

    I agree with airhead. I also have the 16GB. I am going on a vacation so I loaded some videos (movies). I already had a lot of ebooks, music, etc. that used less than 5 GB. I added 6 full length movies and it's only got 1 GB free space left but I'll delete the movies as I watch them.

    It would be nice if Apple provided a SD card slot for such temporary uses.

    Thanks for the quick replies! Luckily, I really am not planning on putting movies on it, so it looks like I should be set!

    Yes, it certainly would.

    One way around that is to use an airstash WiFi card reader. I have one and it works super......

    Think expandable storage is a wish that will never come through. With iCloud just around the corner Apple have the best excuse now. Looking forward to the announcement though!

    From what I've read, icloud is only for music purchased through iTunes making it virtually worthless to most users. ;-)

    Cloud computer storage is great as long as you can get to the cloud. There will be, however, times & places where you can't. So if you're totally dependent on cloud storage, you'll be SOL.

    Good point.

    The larger amounts of cloud storage are usually not free either.

    I use DropBox occasionally, but the free accounts are only 2 gigs so you can't really store a whole lot there.
