Hello everyone. The other day, I won an iPad (yaaay!). It's a 16GB wifi white. But, like a true gadget geek, I'm seriously contemplating upgrading my purchase. As you're about to find out, I'm very undecided about every possible option.
First, I'm really torn on whether or not to get a Verizon model, or not. I know 3G is an option, but I was planning on buying from Best Buy, who only sells Verizon, unless AT&T is much better. I'm unsure whether a cell phone plan is necessary, or if wifi will suffice. I already have an iPhone, and I don't like the idea of spending extra money a month for data. It would definitely be nice to have, though, especially for car trips and such. I'm also considering resale value, and thinking that the iPad will retain it's value better if I buy that feature. But I'm just unsure how much I would use it myself. Then again, I said "who needs internet on their cell phone?", and now look where I am!
Second, I'm undecided about the space. I plan to put a lot of apps on, and maybe a few movies, but not my whole collection. I also listen to podcasts and music, although I can download those to my phone as well. It really seemed like the sweet spot for me was 32GB, but in my experience from Best Buy, 32's are hard to come by and 16's and 64's are a bit easier to find. If that's the case, should I bite the bullet and go for the extra space at 64? Or should I cut costs and go down to 16?
And third - and probably the thing I'm most confident about - is color choice. I'm pretty sure I want a black one, even though it seems white ones are much easier to come by (because I guess they aren't selling as well). I was reading the white ones get dirtier easier and don't offer as much contrast for watching movies. Does anyone who has a white want to defend the color?
Thank you for all your help. I sometimes wish Apple didn't have quite so many options.
