    I have a 64GB and try as I might I can't fill the damn thing! But I am prepared for what the future brings ;)

    I have a feeling by the time you get anywhere near filling up that 64gb, you'll be ready for the next Ipad ;)

    Oh do I hear you.

    I have decided I am not going to let my iPad be yet another device I have to feed and nurture and keep filled. I have all my photos on my PC. Most of them also on my laptop. A select few hundred--maybe a thousand didn't count them--on my iPhone and now on my iPad. How many times have I really looked at those photos? Not many.

    Almost the same thing with music, though I use my iPhone 4 for music far more than my iPad.

    But now that I have started using ZumoCast on my iPhone and iPad it has really changed my view on "having to carry it all with me." Now everything on my main PC is available to me on iPhone/iPad--not just what is in iTunes. It works very good over 3G.... works great over WiFi. If I happen to need a file from my PC it can be download for offline access.

    So with ZumoCast I don't see a need to store much on my iPad. But I am in the "mainly use iPad at home" camp and I don't consider it a laptop replacement (though I have made several trips without laptop--I simple remote in to my PC if I need to do something not possible on iPad).

    For me 64 GB iPad would be a waste of money.

    Agreed.

    Personally, I'm more than willing to sacrifice the 'convenience' of having my entire library at my immediate disposal( which I'll never come close to being in a position to utilize at any time). I think the 32gb is a nice happy medium. 64gb? Not for me, I'll take that $100 and go crazy on apps instead :D.

    Thanks for the tip (ZumoCast). In my work life, my staff was responsible for protecting personal data for over 16,000 FT employees so I've very weary of storing anything in or on a "cloud." Now that I'm retired and only responsible for my own information I may add a few photos :)

    I agree with Tinman. Zumocast is probably the best app I have found for the iPad and it has totally justified me only getting the 16GB iPad. I find it hard to believe the App and the PC component are free.

    Interesting to see everyone's reasoning for why they did or didn't get the larger capacity iPad. For me personally, I was going back and forth (pretty much since it's release date) whether or not I wanted\needed an iPad. Obviously I went ahead and eventually got one, but I went with the lowest model to save some cash and have the least amount of regret if I didn't dig the device (which I'm loving). A buddy of mine got the 64GB WiFi and admits he really only uses all the space for bragging rights and showing off. He has tons of movies on it to show people, etc. For me, the 16GB is working out fine so far. Like others have mentioned, I stream mostly all music and even my photos. I found a Shutterfly app (I've been using Shutterfly for a few years now) and I can easily view all my photos on the iPad, as if they were actually on it locally, great app! I have a few CD's ripped on the iPad and some photo albums. But other then that, I'm not using much space as of yet.

    Thanks for the support! We should have an update coming out soon that will have new features such as multiple audio track support. In the meantime, keep streaming and stay tuned!
