I did not buy ipad1 and now I think I want to have an ipad2. I went to apple stores these last couple of days but they don't have the one I am looking for.

I am wondering if I should buy the 16gb or the 32gb. I am interested in wifi only. I also know that I may be upgrading to ipad 3 when it comes out, so then would it be easier to get a good value out of the 32 or the 16gb mobel.

What has been your experience when you upgraded from 1 to 2.

I also want to know if I can play movies which are stored on my external hard drive connected to my macbook and watch movies inside the house and also when I am outside with wi-fi connected.

Also, I am looking for a way to hook it up in my rav4 for the back seat passengers. whats the most economical and easiest way to do it.

Air video will stream the videos to anywhere you have an Internet connection.

yep, well recommended, they do a free version as well as a paid version

I'm sure I've seen a holder which attaches to the headrest somewhere.

What is the actual space you get with the 16gb and 32gb?
Air video sounds good, I am thinking will 16gb be enough if I stream movies and keep 1gb music. the rest of the space can be for apps and pics.

what do you guys think

for reference, I have the 64GB model, 59.1GB is showing as available for use, I have tons of stuff and garbage installed and still have 49.8GB left

I'd say go for the 32Gb model, best to have too much than not enough

It's really all up to you

I have a 64 gig that has 24 gig free at the moment. 17 videos, 2600 songs, 400 photos, 56 apps, and 9 books. I have nowhere near enough room for photos so they are stored on a couple of one terabyte external drives.

Portable external hard drive?

What about using a portable external drive? I've heard about Sanho Hyperdrive or Seagate GoFlex. What is your advice?

To shorty 106

I have an Airstash. Wifi directly to the iPad with up to a 32 gig card. Works great and connects wirelessly to my iPhone and my MBPro as well.
