    I wanted the 32 gb but got late to the store and only 16 gb was left so I decided to buy it but they told me that if I changed my mind and did not open it I could give it back but I had only 7 days and I could get another model. I do not want to store music just apps and videos.

    What should I do?

    I would hold out for what you want. I found a 16 and thought about it but my wife told me I Should wait for what I wanted. 2 days later I found a 32, and I'm glad I waited.

    You should wait. Videos take a lot more than music. I have 64GB and it is almost full already. I could fill it 30 times over. I do have a "few" comics on it though. For an average movie you need 700mb of space. So you may only get 10 movies on at a time leaving little room for apps. My current apps use up about 25GB.

    And that is 200 apps. Although the comics are counted in the app size

    When I got my first 20 MB hard drive I thought I would never fill it. Yes, 29 MB, Not GB.

    When I bought my first iPod, I thought I was being excessive at getting 80 GB. I was wrong.

    When I bought my first iPad a week ago, I was disappointed that here was no 128 GB model. I bought a 64 and I expect we will buy another 64 in the next few weeks.

    There is always the potential for not enough storage. I have never had too much storage room.

    A couple of weeks ago I started ripping DVDs to put on the iPad. They average around 2 GB each. When we go on vacation we want enough DVDs to last us. I don't think that 25 will be too many. Add some music and apps, and there goes 64 GB.

    I thing Apple charges too much for memory. But I don't want to be caught short.

    Try Videora. It should get them down to 700mb. It's free. I don't know if it will rip from DVD but it will convert the ones you have ripped already.

    You seriously have to ask yourself if you need to have every app available on your ipad and if you need to carry 8 movies with you at all times.
    I have 16gb and my iTunes library have probably 150 apps (that's on my computer) , out of those theres probably 30 on my iPad, boiling it down I probably use 5 to 6 of those apps a day...

    Point is, stop treating the iPad as a stand alone unit and sync every once in awhile .
    That way you don't need to worry about space.... (42)

    What about cloud storage? sites like dropbox, etc can you store apps there? Is that enough? Is it good? I have no idea when the Ipad 2 or even the 32 GB will be on sale again because this thing is selling like crazy and Apple is not sending enough to this stores so is making my decision a lot harder.

    Who wants to run home and sync if you find yourself needing an app or game when you are out? If you have an app or game you want to show someone.
