    What is the preferred memory size, 16 GB/32 GB/64 GB and why? Just wondering... From what I noticed it seems that 32 GB must be bought more often because two places were out of them yet all had the 16 GB in black.

    You have no option

    All iPad 2s come with 512 meg of memory. The original iPad had 256 meg of memory.

    If you are talking about storage then get as much as you need. I have a 64 gig 3G and wifi and supplement that with a 500 gig wifi external drive for a total of 564 gig. I am a photographer with lots of images.

    Wow, I screwed up. I did mean storage even though it would be nice if the next iPad would come with twice the memory.
    I can see that if you start putting images on the iPad the 64 gig won't go far. I have an 80 gig iPod and there isn't too much space left for music or images.
    Apart from that though I assume everybody has their own requirements.

    I have a 64 gig, and paid a significant amount more for it. As a heavy user, I doubt I've ever topped 10 gigs. With dropbox, I have little use for it.

    The price for the 64 gig with wifi and 3G steered me to the middle, especially with rumours that the iPad3 is on the horizon.

    I bought the 64 because I want to put my movies I make on it, along with many photos.

    I got the 64GB Wifi model because I like to be able to add music or movies when I travel.

    Getting back to the OPs question, I read an article that claimed that the most popular model has 64GB of storage. I can't remember if it was a wifi or 3G model, however. I think spending the extra for storage makes sense, at least for me. Constantly running out of space would bother me.

    You should get as much as you can afford. That seems to be a good rule of thumb.

    I've always bought the biggest gig in the devices that do more(Internet, pics, movies, etc) because it is too easy to run out of space quickly on those. But on mp3 players, I've always bought the size that matched my use of the device. I just workout & run & have short commutes, so just a few hundred of my favorite songs will do just fine.
    I think it depends on the device really.
