    Definitely go for at least 32GB. I got 64 and I'm almost out of storage space :D
    I got the WiFi, as I mainly use it around the house, where there's WiFi avalible. If you travel a lot where there's no WiFi, go for LTE.
    Go for the iPad 3. iPad 2 only comes in WiFi 16GB, and has an awful screen (once you've used a 3, it looks terrible).

    The iPad 2 is still available in a 16GB WIFI + 3G model as well.
    Here's a screenshot from the Apple online store.

    Wow thanks for the great welcome, right now I have already ordered the iPad 3 WiFi 16GB, it's the only size that I can afford, but I have read alot of post and it seems that the only thing between me and more storage space is an Apple camera connector kit. I already have several external HDDs, thumb drives and memory cards so I think that the 16GB will do, again thanks for the welcome.

    Hi Rich,

    You might want to check out the CloudFTP thread and Network Attached Storage sub-forum in the iPad Connect forum here http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-connect/

    It might give you some more ideas for maximising the storage capacity of your new iPad.
