    How is the 16g treating u guys as far as storage goes with the upgraded apps? I'm a little worried about memory. I have a 16g wifi arriving tommorrow. I plan on using this for web browsing, email, and news apps. That's it really. No photos and definately no movies. Will I be ok?

    You mean the 16g is enough or go up to 32?

    The question is not what current you wants but what will future you want. How long will you expect this purchase to serve your needs? 3 years, 5 years, more? If less get the 16g, if you are thinking 5... you might want to consider the 32.

    The money you spend today could be money that keeps you from buying a new one sooner because it no longer serves your needs. Apps will always grow in size and you may find that you like doing more than browsing, emailing, and reading the news.

    You should also know that I am always opposed to buying the cheapest option. It is not my nature. Even when I had no clue what I would be using it for I never even once considered the 16gb model. Probably a good thing since I just passed the 19gb mark. Granted 5gb is photos but still...

    It is in my nature to buy the cheapest thing. I have 140 apps on my iPad and it takes up 6G. Anything except apps can be kept in the cloud so 16G should be plenty. Instead of purchasing a lot for one iPad, I would rather upgrade in a few years anyway.

    Which is why I phrased my reply the way I did. For you it is not really cheaper because you are spending money more often. If the intent is to get a purchase that lasts longer and can be upgraded on your schedule not because you ran out of space it is cheaper to spend more. For a hundred dollars more you are almost guaranteeing the purchase will last twice as long as the 16gb model.
