This is a discussion on What size memory is most often bought and why? within the iPad 2 Forum forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Report: Buyers Go With Either The Most Expensive Or Cheapest iPad...
"...The research was done by Context in Western Europe and it found that more than half of all iPad buyers would choose either the 64GB 3G model (also the most expensive), which accounted for roughly 33% of sales, or the 16GB Wi-Fi-only model (curiously the least expensive model), which received 22% of sales. On that evidence, as TheAppleBlog points out, consumers are going “all or nothing” – and many more seem to be saying “all”...
Although the title of the article is technically accurate, the numbers actually imply that the most popular model is neither the most expensive nor the cheapest. It's the 32 G model with 45% of sales. Arithmetic is apparently a challenge for some tech writers.
LOL If I go by that rule of thumb, I would have no PC...nothing:-) I justify my purchases by planning to hand them down to my kids or their kids. It worked for awhile but now their stuff is more up-to-date than mine, especially when supplied by the companies they work for.
I have 64GBS as well as I will have my pad for a while and don't want to run out of storage.Originally Posted by LawPad2

At first I chose the 32GB IPad. Then I decided I need more room for storage so I purchased me this 64 GB

I feel that the 32gb version would satisfy a majority of the users out there. It's kind of like the Goldilocks and the three bears issue: The 16 is a little too small, the 64 is a little too pricey and big, but the 32gb is just right.
32GB Wifi iPad 2 / OS 7.0
The article says this:
.Research firm Context (via V3) compiled a report about the state of the tablet market in western Europe, and found that the 64 GB 3G iPad 2 has accounted for a third of all iPad 2 sales since launch. The next closest model is the 16 GB WiFi-only iPad 2, which was responsible for 22 percent of all sales
So I'm not sure how you can say that 45% of sales is the 32GB model. Note that I added the bolding. They are looking across all memory and wifi vs 3G, so that 45% includes breakdowns over more than just memory.
