    What size iPad did you buy? And how much space are you using?

    Hey all. I am buying my iPad this week and am fighting with myself on what size I would need. I am wondering what all size you all bought, and how much you have filled yours up so far?

    I have a 16g iPhone 3Gs currently and I have 9 gig available. Not sure if you that gives any idea of my usage.

    Thanks for any feedback! I am buying either 16 or 32. I do not have a lot of music. Its the app sizes I am wondering about, and what all you are seeing.

    i probably won't use a ton of space for apps themselves, but for me, I have a ton of movies I plan to use my Ipad for. So I am planning to buy the 64G 3g version when it comes out for sale.

    I purchased the 16 and I have used about 3 gigs. No music just files, photos, and one or two movies with the netflix app I don't need as man as I had thought. And I use mine more than I should.

    I heard someone say to double the size of the storage on your current iPod / touch - and then buy the next size up. I was working on my iPod Touch's storage last night =- moving things around, etc. and I realized that I rarely if ever watch video / movies / tv on mine - screen is too small. I think that will change when I get my iPad.

    Even if you buy the smaller size you can always buy an AirStash and have unlimited memory. Mine should be shipping by 4/30 so I'll let you guys know how it works.

    I downloaded 44 apps...I have 29 gigs...27 gigs free...32gig iPad....tons of
    Free books downloaded so far...I think unless you plan on storing vids....why bother...the netflix streaming is awesome...seems the 32 will be enough. But who knows...this device may wind up replacing everything in the house.

    Books and apps don't eat too much space (unless you bout Xe).
    I have a 32gb and use about 21gb, but I've just started to get used to GoodReader and AirShare. That will give at least at office documents some relieve.
    Most likely written on my iPad

    Yes - let us know about the airstash. Also about how it manages battery power. Have you tried managing extra storage from mobile me?

    One last note re storage - doesn't it make sense to buy as much storage capacity as you can afford? Two reasons - one is that your need for storage isn't going to decrease, and two - when / if you ever go to sell your iPad to buy v2 or whatever - won't 64gb models be much more attractive to sell than 16's?
