    I just traded my 32 gig ipad for 64 gig one. I put everything on this one that I had on my last one. i have 53 gigs left. But I plan on putting a handful of video clips on it which will bring me down to about 50 gigs. I'm pretty choosey what I put on my ipad. I try not to put just anything it. Its gotta be something worthy or of importance.

    About 10 GB left on mine. I'm an app hog with over 500 installed, 5000 pics, and about 1300 songs. Love having it all with me at all times.

    Your 32gb was obviously less than half full, I too try not to keep any rubbish on it, but there will of course be some items which may only get used/seen occasionally. I keep a few HD camcorder clips on mine too which I can share with other members of the family when visiting, but it's a simple matter of deleting stuff when I tire of them..so it's no big deal.

    Personally I can't see the point of buying a 64GB version if only 50% ever gets used, as obviously the 32GB model would suffice... I was initially hoping that Apple would increase the memory capacity, so the new range had 32gb & 64gb and 128gb, it would have sort of made the upgrade that little bit more worthwhile.. and giving better value to the lower models too. However, I suppose that was too much to ask, as it would have impacted and killed the iPad 2 market stone dead, it would have meant a even bigger price drop across the iPad 2 range and Apple would'nt want that.

    Frankly, I see no point in not using the storage space on your tablet. Saving it is not really doing you any good, you paid for it and it is there. Not using it is really a waste of money. You can always remove content. Nothing really should have to pass an "importance" test. But, it is YOUR device to do with as YOU please. I'm just saying is all....

    Remember, the new iPad cost more to make than the previous models did. Adding a 128 GB model at the same price point would very likely seriously cut into profit margins (and they typically do make more profit on the higher capacity models, anyway). It usually works out that over time, the prices come down so that perhaps next year it will be feasible for apple to offer a 128 GB model. The retina displays will hopefully be cheaper to make by then, too.

    Lol. I know what you mean. During my last one-year break from work, I used my iPad so much that I needed a second, so that I'd always have one charged up.

    Love to play, but I invariably miss work. Maybe I won't crave the action after a couple more decades. I wonder what kind of tech we'll be using by then.

    I never said I wasn't going to ever use my gigs. I just meant I'm not in a rush to do so. I'm glad I got the 64 one. Because I plan on having this a long time. And as time goes by I have the room to add music and apps and still have room for more.

    Your right of course.. But no harm in dreaming or wanting more..lol. Hopefully on future iPads Apple will have added the capability for multiband 4G so users outside of the USA can also benefit from faster available Networks. Certainly with the price of memory falling, I think I'd be a little disappointed if they didn't increase the memory across the range, with 32gb being the starting point. Having now improved the screen, it would seem natural for them to increase it on the next model. IOW don't give all the sweeties to your customer base in one go, especially when the item is selling well, make sure you hold a few back for the next model...ie. natural progression.
