OK, help me out. I don't know which one to get, so maybe people who actually own one can help. Here's what's going on: I have $1000 to spend or save. I will buy an iPad this Friday or Saturday. But I also have another major purchase also, in that I would also like buy a $800 camera (both the iPad and camera are for both personal use and business -- I'm an outdoor writer who takes my own pics. And possibly will be a student again.)
Part of me wants the 3G for if I can't find a hotspot to use the WIFI, but I don't know if it's absolutely necessary for me to have it. To those that have one or the other, is it worth the extra money to have the 3G in case you need it (I won't subscribe except for the times where I need it). I'm afraid if I don't have it I'll regret not having it. But if I do have it, I'll waste the $15 subscription fee when I don't really need to. So if buy the WIFI only, I'll save $130.
The second part to that, do I really need the 32GB, or can I get by on the 16? I have the 32GB iPhone, and I have never went over 10 GB in use, and I have TONS of apps and some movies on there. I probably won't be doing lots of movie watching, but with kids, I might on occasion. I will mostly be using it as a book reader and like a laptop -- mostly for writing word documents, and saving my pics and video to it when I'm on the road.
So here it is: I had planned on getting the 3G+WIFI 32 GB, which is $720. But, if I get the WIFI 16 GB, I can save $220 and only be about $350 away from also getting the camera. I'm trying to resist my nature of over-buying and getting the biggest and baddest (and having 20GB of unused space with 3G I don't need). Yet I don't want to buy short and not have what I need either.
