    I'm thinking of getting the 16gb and want to know if people feel it is big enough. Main reason I'm thinking it will be enough is because programs like airvideo no longer will we have to have all of our media on our device. What do you guys think?

    It is for me. I am not a huge media person, and just like the Apps/Browser, etc... I think it largely depends on how much of your library you want on your device. I do not find myself listening to local music off the device, hardly ever. I do use Pandora often.

    16 gigs is fine for me. I haven't even used one full gig yet.

    Biggest memory hog by far has been video so if you don't plan on storing any of it on your iPad then 16G may be enough. I say "may" be because there could come the time when your iPad isn't in reach of your stored video library (say when you're on vacation) and you'll want to take some of those movies along with you. For reference Iron Man was 1.3G (non-HD). Also, the actual free memory on a 16G iPad is less than 16G, the OS takes up some room, so do some checking before buying (although Apple will take it back within 2 weeks if you decide you need the larger storage of a 32 or 64).

    lucky you.....I got the 32GB and have 25 full already......even if I kill all my movies, I would still need 12-13GBs......do yourself a favor and get a 32GB.

    Mines great for me. Sure, it would be nice to put my 34 gigs of music on it. But truth is I only listen to maybe 4 gigs worth on any kind of regular basis. I do have 4 gigs of photos on it.

    It would be nice to have more, but I sure don't "need" it.

    I have only 171 songs, but 5 movies (2 in HD), 10 TV shows (History Channel, Lost Worlds, etc., 70 music videos, 77 apps (about 10 of those are heavy, with a couple of 100MB), 150 pictures, 3.5GB docs, pdfs and about 30 books.

    Ok, I could get rid of at least of half of the video content, but then I would probably add more music and more pdf/ebook.

    I'm not using it for pics, I'm not storing music or video or movies. I'll stream Netflix, watch UTube once in awhile and be fine with the capacity.
