    Depends on whether you will be saving videos etc to the iPad.

    We have a 32G Pad and have used just over 10G in 18 months. We have over 150 apps but very little in the way of documents kept on the Pad. Several hundred images. No videos.

    Some apps can be quite large but most of those we have are less the 100M.

    To give you an idea of app size.

    NAVFree USA with only 3 states load is 431mb

    Tiger Woods 12 Golf for iPad is 408mb

    Need for Speed app is 382mb

    That's over 1gig for just three apps

    Enjoy your iPad :D

    Hi, I (with my son's help) got a new iPad2 for my wife. We don't forsee much in the way of large volume video/image/audio on this device. It has only 16g.
    We have started with a few apps, including a huge library of egw religious writings and bible software. Still have 12 gigs available.

    So, I feel strongly that 16 is fine for her.

    If you need lotsa space for video, etc. get more memory.

    $100 is a little steep for 16g of extra memory,, but to have inside and useable in such a kewl device,, quite a bargain!

    I want a '3'.. and I'll probably get 32g.

    Enjoy!

    If you are saving videos and a lot of music, then go 32. I don't so I'm perfectly happy with my 16. I never could understand why somebody would save all their music on the iPad. Much better options out there for that. And how many videos do you want to store on it too? I would just load what you want to watch on a trip, or over the next week. It is easy enough to dump and reload new ones.

    Two points to make here.

    Bear in mind that you dont get the full 16gb. You only get 14gb as far as I can remember.

    Also whilst travelling is where I really appreciate my ipad and you may wish to load it up with movies, apps and photos etc and 14gb is never enough for me.

    It seems that 32GB is the right choice for most people and only in extreme cases is the 16 or the 64 the right call. You'll have to determine what your usage will be but 32GB is almost always enough for most users.

    32gb is fine. I would have got that if I could have waited for it to come in here and I ended up getting the 64gb. I have almost half filled it but with films I may never watch again! I would not recommend the 16gb.
