    I have 64 but doubt I will ever use all of that. I'd recommend the 32gb IMO.

    I have 32 and it's not enough. I have to decide which apps I want on it and which music.

    It depends on how you use it, but I have 20Gb of apps and 70Gb of music. You can't increase storage so buy bigger rather than smaller but until you get one it is very difficult to know. Games can be 1Gb if they have good graphics, CoPilot Europe is 2Gb, most apps are a lot smaller. Videos are also large.

    Unfortunatly, you won't know what you want until you start using it so some people find 32 plenty, others find 64 to small, 16 is usualy regretted. YMMV

    We debated between 32 and 64 as well before deciding on 64. By the time we put all our music and pics on, and added over 300 apps we've got 15GB left. Keep in mind, most users almost certainly add new music/pics/apps without subtracting. IMO it's better to go bigger.

    No one can answer your question without knowing more about your use and willingness to manage space on the iPad. 32 gigs appears to be a "sweet spot" for most users. In my case, I decided to change my order from 32 to 64 gigs before the iPad was delivered simply because I knew I wouldn't be able to increase the storage after purchase.

    Many users report that 16 gigs is perfectly acceptable. But some qualify that by saying that they pay attention to what they put on the iPad and manage the space. If you don't want to do that, better to go with more than less.

    The most you can afford; which is my advice on any electronic that comes with memory or storage.

    I was also looking at the 32GB and 64GB models and I ended up going for the 64GB. The way I looked at it is it was $100 more for double the storage and I was comfortable spending that much so I went for it. I'd rather have too much space than not enough.

    I have the 64GB version but also I have over 30GB just in music alone and that was the factor to make me buy the 64GB version!

    Another full-tilt 64g3 here as well. I could have easily got away with a 32 although the differential price made the 64 more logical. I plan on upgrading as often as I can afford it, so someone in my circle wins.
