    16 or 32GB

    I know there has been many posts about what size should I get but they didnt really help ME out...

    Let me tell you what I will be using my iPad for and I would love to hear your suggestions... I know alot of people believe you should get what you can afford.... I was actually suppose to get an iPad2 when they went onsale with the launch of the new ipad... when I looked at the prices I felt $100 for the NEW ipad was way worth it... I ordered it without even telling my hubby (he was at work) till a number of hours later.. he wasnt mad of course, it was just $100... we arent really well off ....we dont have alot of cash to throw around for extra stuff. We do always have enough money for all of our food/bills... we own a house we always put a small amount into our savings each month.

    I dont know if I plan on putting music on my ipad.. I have 23 songs on my iphone (16GB which 10GB is free).. I have speakers that I use to listen to my songs... I just like having new songs on it and I change them out often....... I didnt even KNOW you could put movies on an ipad so I am not sure if I would do that...

    I wont be putting pictures from my iphone or camera on my ipad (not that I know of... if anything maybe a few, or just while we are on vacation as backup from my 8GB memory card and they would come off right when I get home). I do plan on taking pics with the ipad

    I will be surfing the net ALOT, checking mail ALOT, watching youtube videos, maybe netflix...

    I will be downloading apps but really only use the same 6 apps on my iphone.... maybe download some kids games.. if my husband had his way he would want more games on it, but its MINE LOL

    Thats about it.. Im sure if I had more storage I would put more on it (i try to save space on my iphone)... but I am 3 hours from the closest apple store and I preordered....Apple says even if I go to that apple store (which I COULD go as early as saturday and hubby is on holidays next week) they might not exchange it for me since I ordered online.... i dont really want the hassle of sending mine back to apple and waiting till who knows when for apple to be able ot ship me a 32GB

    From the sounds of your post, I would say you could be totally happy with 16GB. If you really feel that is true, then by all means just get teh 16GB. You can certianly make that work and the extra $100 could be put to better use elsewhere. For me, I would be struggling with 16GB....I get nervous when my space starts gettings low.

    I will be a new Ipad owner as of tomorrow - I bought the 16GB - will that be enough - I have no idea since this is my first one. But if I run out of space I can sell this one and upgrade or wait until the next release happens. It will be a learning experience for me.

    Don't forget you don't have to have everything on your iPad all at once. You can swop things around via iTunes. To the OP 16GB will be more than enough for your needs.

    I have bought the 62.. I found my 32 became full quickly. You have to remember the newer apps take up a great deal of room as do the graphics..

    I wouldn't stress about it. It sounds like 16GB will be sufficient for your needs.

    If you are going on a trip and you want to watch movies, you might run out of space. I put a movie on mine and only have 4.4 gb left. Many movies are about that size. If I bought again I would go with a 32gb model.

    Jeez, anyone would think the apps will take around 5GB each!

    Read the OP's post again, for her needs and uses, 16GB will be absolutely fine.
