    I am trying to decide which ipad2 to get.
    Between the 16gb and 32gb with 3g?
    I dont download a bunch of music or too many movies but i do want to watch my cable on demand and i am not sure if i need a ipad with 16gb or 32gb. I dont want to run out of space and have to upgrade too soon since this is alot of money to spend. I will be mainly surfing websites, forums, email and watching on demand and movies when i travel and might have a couple of games on it.

    I want enough space but dont want to spend too much and really dont know if i would use 32gb one the 16gb...:confused:

    If you want to save money and if you don't need the camera why not look at a refurb iPad 1 32gb from Apple, good saving from an iPad 2.

    Ah! See, you didn't tell us all the info.

    For me I would go 32gb, once you realise how much you can do you'll start using that space, better to have too much than too little.......but that's just me and I always have too much!

    It is very simple. Buy as many as are available that you can afford.

    There is no way anyone here can know you full requirements or expectations.

    I just checked prices on at&t for the 3g versions and i can get a 64gb 3g ipad for 529, so my next question is, how different are the two ipads?
    I know the i2 has a cammera but thats all i know..Does the ipad1 have the GPS like the ipad2 and are all the apps the same?

    All 3G iPads have GPS, wifi only models don't have it. There are a few apps which are iPad 2 only but the majority of apps run on both, iMovie is an example of an iPad 2 only app this is due to iPad 2 having more RAM and a faster processor. I have an iPad 1 and I haven't regretted not upgrading at all but it really depends on how you will use it.

    Since it's a gift for a loved one I'd suggest the 32gb.
    What their needs/wants are now are probably going to change quite a bit as they learn more of the abilities of the ipad.
    DropBox and all those cloud sites are great when you have access to the web but are useless offline.
    I've got a 16gb3g ipad 1 and have plenty of memory to spare but I also use my phone much more and use a lot more of its memory. If not for my Android phone 16gb would not be enough for me and I don't have any movies on either device, just files, photos, apps and home videos
    Hope that helps

    Definitely 32gb as that's what I have and I have up to 10 films, 500 songs, 2/3000 ebooks and loads and loads of apps which are slowly being filled up. I can change that when I want and still have space to download films for rent.
