    This post is to know if you have 64 gb iPad, you're really fill out the storage. Thanks

    On my old one, I once used 50GB, but a lot of that was saved recorded files which I later transferred to a third party app on my PC.

    I lke the space, better to have too much than to run out:)

    I've always believed that it's not the size of your memory but how well you use it...but then I have a 16 gig so it could just be envy on my part. Btw, of the 16 pn mine I use about 10.

    Storage space, not memory

    Your memory is fixed at 512 meg, that's not changeable. As to storage space, I use around 50-55 gig routinely with an additional 32 gig available via my Airstash. That may be upped to 500 gig if Seagate ever produces their go flex satellite. I have 235 gig of photos alone.

    I couldn't fit everything on mine, far too many large photos and files, just the stuff I'm working on lives on this, then backed up :)

    Both my iPad 1 and 2 are nearly filled to 64GB. I want more, more, more storage. My music alone takes up about 32GB, and I have lots of photos I don't have room for.

    I could limp along with less storage, but I'm not interested in moving things on and off, and I'm no fan of cloud storage.

    I could fill four 64GB iPads with my music and movies. (two with movies alone). So yes, I've filled up my 64GB iPad1. However, media management is, I think, what we're really talking about here. If you're smart you can manipulate the 16GB without too much trouble. Since I could afford the 64GB that's what I bought but I think I could manage a smaller device if I had to. Now though, if I'm just hangin' around the house I have mostly music and apps on my iPad. But if I'm traveling it ends up being mostly movies and apps instead.

    I have had my iPad for about 4 months now and I have already used about 40 of my 64gb, most of it movies. I currently have 27 full length movies and 6 music videos on it, as well as about 400 songs and a bunch of apps.

    64 gig just isn't enough space. Mine is always full.

    It's not too bad around the house because I can access my whole library over wifi, but deciding what to take with me is always a hassle.

    What do I want to watch 3 days from now? I don't know, but I have to decide before I leave. PITA.

    I've never filled mine half way, but I don't keep a lot of movies or tv shows on it. I did buy the largest they had since files seem tom grow larger with each passing year.

    My 500gb hd took a big dump on me and so did my music and movie collection....FML


    Otherwise 60 gbs would not be sufficient to fulfill my music collection alone.

    It doesn't take smarts to limit content on any device, lol. It's a matter of preference. I could live in a smaller house, too, but I choose not to. I choose not to juggle content, as I would with less space, because I don't want to bother.

    I'm almost filled up on music alone. 2 movies are just right.

    LOL :) This is true. Every time storage tech improves, it seems that everything else just gets bigger. Bigger is better. So American. LOL :)

    But to answer the OP, no. It seems that I hover around 30ish GB of use at any given time. So, like half. I'm not a shutterbug and my taste in music, while broad, is discerning, so I don't have too much music either. Maybe 10 gigs in the lalalas. I use my iPad quite a bit in my work. I am a court interpreter and translator. I get a lot of documents in PDF format to translate from Spanish to English and the ease of the page swipe and pinch zoom are a godsend because sometimes the scans of those PDFs aren't the greatest. But those docs are off my iPad as soon as I am done with them. I'm kindov' a tech neat freak. If I'm not using it, buh-bye. I have a terabyte external to hold everything in case I need to retrieve it.

    Now if someone could just write a nice little transcriptionist's app for the iPad, then I would truly be in heaven.

    I don't put any music on my iPad. I use Stream To Me to listen to all my music from iTunes. Unfortunately this only works on wifi.

    What have you against cloud storage? It's a wonderful way to back up your files and you can stream in 3G from anywhere. I use Amazon MP3 and I love it (on my Droid 2).

    I only have about 3 gigs left. A few days ago I had about 25 gigs but then I got the av player which plays mvks. So I loaded a few of my 720p mkvs to watch.

    Memory and storage are the same thing. They are both flash memory. If you are talking about the difference between ram and regular memory (the 16, 32, or 64 gbs) then they are the same.

    Uhmm, no. Memory and storage are NOT the same, and are entirely different in terms of how they work on a computer, and should not be used interchangeably. That's exactly where so much of the confusion comes from.

    Memory, also known as RAM, is a more volatile form of computer memory which in the iPad is comprised of SDRAM circuits (not flash memory), and there are usually about 20+ native processes on iOS running at any given time when the iPad is active. When you start an app, this is where it 'runs' and when you multitask between apps, this is where they are switched in and out of active memory. iPad1 has 256 MB and iPad2 has 512 MB of RAM.

    Storage, also known as disk space, is the amount of space on your device to store apps and other kinds of data including music, videos and ebooks. These are stored on flash memory on the iPad, which is why it runs so much faster than, say, a laptop with a spinning hard drive. On both generations of iPad, storage comes in 16, 32 and 64 GB options.

    No need for a long explanation, I know how flash memory works.

    My point was, that essentially they are the same. Flash memory. Ram has a highway to the CPU and is used more often.
