I wanted to make sure I had enough to get a case, bag, and whatever else I thought would be cool. The air stash seems like a great idea but I want to see some reviews before I do that.
    Yea Im taking a leap of faith with the airstash but it's only $100 and if it doesn't work I guess I can return it. But if it does work it will solve alot of my storage issues with several devices.

    I have to vote for the "bigger the better" crowd. It is not a good feeling to want space and not have. Take my vote with a grain of salt, I think 64gb is small.

    thats great for media, but it won't help with apps.

    I can use orb for audio streaming over my computer and air video for video...so thats not my concern.
    I ordered the 64GB 3G, so if I use the airstash mostly for media, then I can dedicate the majority of the onboard 64GB to app's. That's alot of app's! What the airstash does is give me flexibility, assuming it works of course.
    A user review as soon as you get it. I want to know more.

    Thanks

    Hmmmm..... Thanks for the information. I'm still not sure what I am going to do.

    I figured out that if each app were 256 MB, 4 apps would equal 1 GB (256 X 4 = 1024), so I could put 128 256MB apps on 32 GB (256 X 128 = 32768). I probably won't have that many games. More like 4 or 5 games. The rest of the apps will be much smaller.

    On the other hand, for another $100, I wouldn't have to worry.

    Still the iPad is already kind of expensive.

    You got it 4phun. Hopefully I'll have my 3G by then as well.

    Most apps are a tiny fraction of that size, though. I think 1 MB to 10 MB is the average range.

    I'm going to use my iPad mostly for surfing and running apps. I doubt that I will ever load a video on it, or music. I may load a few pictures, but not much.

    I have about 40 apps that I want to load, a few (4 or 5) which are games.

    To those lucky enough to have an iPad, how much space are you using?
    Go for the 64GB + 3G, that is what I am going to get. Remember if you get too much storage it is okay, if you get too little you will regret it.

    Why would you not buy the largest memory unit that you can afford? I've heard people say that if you're getting the 3G's you should get less memory because you'll be using the cloud - bunk! We're only talking about 64GB here.

    BTW - does anyone know how much 'usable' memory we'll have after the base system load for the ipad and the 3G drivers?
