    As more developers upgrade apps to take advantage of retina screens and such, apps will get bigger. So 64 would mean more flexibility to store apps, as well as other types of content. That depends on how much you want to store, of course.

    I take photos on my iPhone and view them on my tablets. I have lots of apps too, lots of magazine issues...and I don't keep but one or two albums on my iPad. IMO, there is just so much more you can do with more storage.

    But, truth be told, it really depends on the user. Some get by find with just 16 GB. Some don't like having lots of stuff. Some just want to do email and surf.

    So, in the end, you really have to know yourself. If you ask me, I'm gonna say get the bigger one if you can afford it, but if you know you aren't going to be into using all that storage (which isn't all that much anymore) then it would be a waste of your funds.

    Yes, that could be made to work. It's not the way I work...I use my cloud for work-related files and PDFs of various sorts. But I see no reason why one could not store and view photos this way.

    You will have more power to control the Empire and crush those Rebel scum vs the 32.

    That or as the Col. said just double the storage.

    I personally couldn't justify the cost hike for the 64gb model so I went with the 32 instead. Totally pleased with my decision. I've never had a storage issue and don't foresee one in the future. I'm not the type to have a bunch of movies or even songs stored so my test case might be friendlier to the 32. However, I don't skimp on apps and do have quite a few office docs stored on there created in QuickOffice pro.

    $100 bucks just seems like a lot for that upgrade, IMO.

    An iPad is an expensive way to store media content. $100 for 16 lousy Gigs? If money isn't a problem, get 64. If it is get 16. If you're in any way neurotic, like me, get 32 - the size Apple especially developed for memory neurotics
