    Hi everyone!

    I'm in Europe (so sorry my english
    :p) and the new iPad would be on sale just on 23March. I will
    probably buy the 16GB version.

    The question is: Is that storage enough? Many people say that it's "suicide", but i really want to here the opinion of who already have it. :)

    Documents and that stuff I will put on dropbox... I'm thinking of have more or less 10GB of apps only...

    Cheers!

    I have a 16gb ipad 2 & wish I bought a bigger one. Apps for the iPad are so much bigger (and more expensive) than apps on Android. I had to take all my movies off just to make room for apps...I've had the iPad for about 2 months & I only have 3gb left! Buy the biggest one you can afford!

    You can make do with the 16 Gb, but remember that on any computer, some of the drive stores the system. You will have more management to do, and will have to forgo many things with only 16 Gb. You would b a lot happier with 32 Gb. It is like boat engines, you don't want to go with the base model for your boat when you get caught in a storm.

    I have a 64GB iPad 1 and thought I'd try a 16GB iPad 2 when they first started selling, since I was going to have two iPads. I started loading apps and other content onto the 16GB, saw how quickly I was filling it and immediately returned it for a 64GB iPad 2.

    When I purchased my origina iPad I went for the 32GB figuring that whould be more than fine. For the past few months, waiting for the new iPad to release, I've had to play carefully deciding what I was going to remove/add because I've been out of space. I purchased the 64GB happily, better to have a little extra space than not enough. Good luck!

    With various apps upgrading to take advantage of the new iPad's retina screen resolution, some apps are only going to grow in size. That will make storage more challenging with 16GBs, even on iPad 1 and 2.

    One more question: Can I open/edit documents/images/vids that arent on the iPad, but on the SD (with adapter)?

    :)

    16GB has always been plenty for me. I don't really use it for movies or music, so I've never come close to filling it.
