    I got the white 32. That is more than enough storage for what I need.

    That seems to be the right size for me, too. I don't have the mini yet, but have a 32 Gb white iPad 2! Simply love the thing!

    Waiting for mini 2. However I love my pad2. Not very portable due to weight and size but not sure I could do with one or the other. Will make that determination when I have both.

    I think the social media apps are a must plus some new games like Temple Run 2, Candy Crush etc. :)

    glad I purchased the 32g ipad, i debated it for a week 16g vs 32g because i wasnt sure I would download that much stuff but I sure as heck did...only 3 gig available right now lol. Have fun with the thing!
