    I plan to get the ipad. There are two options: The 1st gen, 32 Gb, 3G or the Ipad 2, 16 Gb, wifi. Price for both are almost the the same.

    The biggest argument against the 16 Gb is space. I have the Iphone 3Gs and have used 3.8 Gb of space since i got the phone one year ago.

    I will use the ipad purposely when i travel. I bring the Asus EEPC netbook. Its light but with the power supply, etc., it becomes heavy. I bring two cams, lenses, etc., with the netbook. I was thinking the ipad will lighten my load. I use the netbook to check mail & surf the net. Not for editing (photo's) but with some occasional blogs of my trip.

    My question is: Are applications for the Ipad bigger in memory than the Iphone? If they are the same, then i wouldn't have to worry about memory.

    The consideration for the 1st gen Ipad is the 32 Gb memory and not the 3G because my iphone has 3G anyway.

    The ipad 2 is lighter, faster, with face time, etc.

    What do you think?

    depends your purpose with the ipad, plus if you are a music junkie not 16 GB is not enough or for movies.

    No, i'm not an audio & video junkie. As mentioned, i've used 3.8 Gb of my iphone 3GS, 16gb memory.

    If the app's have the same memory then the ipad2 16 gb will be ok for my needs.

    Thanks! Now, i have to wait for the ipad2 16gb. Believe it or not, there are more buyers than sellers here in Asia. We have to wait 2-4 weeks until we get our units from Apple Asia.

    But i guess it would be worth the wait :)

    I use a WiFi 16GB iPad, Because I already have a 160GB iPod for the extra storage capacity. and I just use it to surf the web and store some photos, a few movies, and maybe some songs. so it depends your need.;)

    Depends on how you use your IPad

    With more and more of our computing using the cloud, 16GB can be enough but I'd still consider the 32GB as the minimum. You'd love having the extra space for storing things when you're not hooked to the cloud. I personally think the 64GB is just steep enough in price to make that one a bad value but that's my thinking and my budget. I'd care more about the 3G option than the added memory when you're trying to figure out which combo to go with. The problem with these wonderful little devices is they sort of nickle and dime us to death. There's added plugs and holders and keyboards and covers and well the money keeps flowing out. That's where I'm finding it hard to use control. Then there's the added software and other things on ITunes we can't hold back from picking up here and there. We all have to admit this is a luxury, not a necessity. Gee I love luxuries don't you?

    I respect your opinion but,,,,,

    Sorry, but this time I have to say I think that while the price for the IPad I is attractive, it's the IPad 2 that's made it the must have for all the tech junkies out there that really want to compute anywhere on the go. The difference between the two machines is simply astounding. I'd hold back and wait till I can afford the IPad 2. This is one time I think you'll be glad you did go with the much faster machine that really does do so much more, so much better than the first generation. CNET call the IPad I the great toy for people who like to look great in while enjoying overpriced coffee in chic curbside establishments where you want everyone to see you. The IPad II is simply a wonderful device that just keeps proving it's worth day after day no matter where or what you need it for. The IPad II is the choice I'd recommend. This is a device that will change the way you compute forever I assure you.

    It's totally up to you I would say. When you have to save a lot of stuff I would recommended a higher Size.
