Hi. I just got an iPad 2 for Christmas. The wonderful person who purchased it wasn't sure what to buy do he bought me a 16 gb 3G with wifi. I'm only concerned the 16 gb won't be enough space. Any thoughts? It is for home use and will be mostly used to read books, check email, surf Internet and put some movies on it during vacations. Would love some knowledgeable feedback.

Welcome! Unless you book a lot of movies on your iPad ~ you should be fine. See what others say! I have the biggest, and I have NO movies, NO music, and not even 20 apps!
When I get the iPad3, I will get your size or the 32GB.

Hi and welcome to the Forum!
Regarding your question if you want to put movies on your iPad well they can take up quite a bit of space. If you're good at managing your iPad you could just leave your movies on your computer and swap them out when you want them, but if not I would be going for a larger capacity. Others will chime in with their thoughts but Apple do have a 14 day window from when its purchased where you can upgrade to a bigger model.

Thanks guys. I have decided to upgrade to 32 gb
If it's not too late, you can also consider a network attached storage (NAS). You can stream movies, pictures, etc. and these will also be available to other wifi devices. It takes some setup time, but well worth the effort. If you travel, you can set up the NAS so you can access it from the internet.
