    Getting my iPad2 within the next couple days (wifi) and wondering which version I should get.... I was thinking just the 16 GB since I have a 32GB iPhone 4 anyway.

    My main purpose of using this is in my car, getting a car mount and playing songs on it (I know the hardware I need already) And if needed I could always plug in my iPhone 4 to it and play songs through that. So here are the possible solutions that I could get and I'm wondering on which one and why you guys would pick it. If you could help me out that would be great. Thanks!

    16 GB iPad 2... 48 GB total between iPhone and iPad 2
    32 GB iPad 2... 64 GB total between iPhone and iPad 2
    64 GB iPad 2... 96 GB total between iPhone and iPad 2.

    I know the 64 GB could be overkill but I have 35 GB of music on my computer (no I don't listen to it all OBV, I know) but I like to just have all the artists I like right there you know? This way if I'm ever in the car I can be just like, "oh I have that song!" and get it. Plus I could have tons of video on it as well.

    I don't know, I guess it's ultimately up to me, but what would you guys do?

    If you're going to use it for a car mount maybe you should buy a first gen instead. AT&T is selling the 64 gig 3G for $529 which is an awesome price for a car computer and you have the added ability of having Internet and GPS.

    Well I jailbroke my iPhone 4 so I can use that as a modem for the iPad/iPad2. I want to be able to take it out and plan on using it on the go as well though. But I want to be able to put it in my car when I go out for everyday - relatively easily you know? So I only need the wifi one, not to mention the iPad 2 is clearly the better buy. Hell it's only like 100 bucks cheaper for the iPad.

    EDIT- Assuming that I CAN still use my iPhone as a modem for tethering and they don't crackdown THAT much...

    I don't think you read what I said right. It's $300 cheaper than the same spec in the 2nd gen which is a fantastic deal. I have a 2nd gen iPad and having played with both iPads there isn't that much of a difference unless you're a gamer.

    While I have the 64GB, and will probably get the 64GB again, I'm not 'normal'. I think the 32GB is the sweet spot.

    I think it all depends on how much are you into gaming with the IPad2.

    Cause of the better graphics way better games with way better graphics and way bigger content will come up in the future which will take way more space.

    Infinity Blade got 548MB
    Modern Combat 2 Black Pegasus HD got 450MB
    Eternal Legacy HD got 579MB
    Prince of Persia Warrior Within HD got 665MB
    Splinter Cell COnviction 550MB
    Dungeon Hunter 2 HD 467MB

    thats all newer 3D games for the IPad 1, and everyone is round a half GB, now if you plan to take a lot of music on the IPad and/or Movies the 32GB model is very fast maxed out imho.

    I will not take my music on the IPad2 but movies and games, and i think that 32GB wotn be enough, i stick with the 64GB model.

    I have a 16GB and there are times I wish I'd got the 32 and I will probably more so now that I got the 2. But what I do when in a pinch is use the app store as a "cloud". I delete and re-download the apps I don't want and do want respectively. As many know, once you buy an app you can re-download it for free whenever you want.

    As to the battery issue, it still have never run out of juice before I get home or can access an outlet when I've done this. But I always do it on Wi-Fi, probably it would drain much more on 3G.

    Most people will not see this as a worthwhile way to manage space but it works for me.
