Don't tell the wife but I have
5 laptops
1 netbook
6 desk tops
4 ATVs
3 WHS servers
running at home currently. All are connected via Apple Extreme 5ghz and gigabit LAN.

I have at last count 8000 tunes, 1100 movies and a bunch of tv shows on the servers which we stream to the ATVs via ITUNES and to Win7 boxes directly.

My IPAD will be an interface to the network and will seldom if ever leave the house. I have 4 different sized laptops for travel missions. Besides, I am never more than 50 feet from WOW and Planetside.

So the wireless 16Gig is fine for my needs.

Pre-ordered the 32gb wi-fi. My Touch is the same size and have only used about 20gb so factoring a few gigs more for the iPad makes sense to me. Will consider upgrading as newer versions come out.

I went around and around about which to buy and I'm with you AKNorth, I got the 32gb WiFi, I think it will be perfect! I originally planned to order online, but I can't get Sat. shipping and the store isn't very far, so I decided to hang out with the other iPad fans at the store. YAY! Can't wait!!!!

Replacement for my Palm and other items

I ordered the 32mg w/WiFi & 3G. Willing to wait until later in April. Also ordered keyboard dock and case. Ordered as soon as I could online on the 12th. My Palm is finally dieing, and needs replacement, plus I envison using I-Works at the NY State Archives and other facilities for research and note taking. Just Published my first book using MS Office on my MacBook Pro using both WinXP and Leopard OS.
Also own an ITouch and 2nd gen. Ipod. I also have a Sony Ereader which is nice, but not nearly as nice as the IPad.
My only question is how much memory does the OS use and what is left for the user! No one at my local Apple store could answer that, and the Apple tech data on line does not cover that issue. They indicate a memory card tray, but will it take an SD Card?

64 GB Wi-Fi looks great! It's still not too expensive, and with the keyboard dock it would be perfect!

Although I think I could do plenty with a 32 GB as well. :p

I ordered the 64GB WiFi only model. I have a great Nokia phone that runs an app called Joikuspot which turns my phone into a WiFi hotspot anywhere in the world, so no need to buy any additional 3G coverage.

I'm mostly going to use the iPad for traveling, which I do quite a lot of. I'm not sure I'll ever use it at home, but it looks to be perfect for airports, airplanes and hotels. I need to carry my work laptop regardless, as it has encrypted data and tools that won't work on a tablet or netbook, so for me the iPad is purely an entertainment device. I ordered the largest memory model as I'll be replacing my Archos 80GB PMP for watching movies (I can't wait for the larger screen!) and my Kindle for eBooks, as well as my iPod for music and Audible books. In addition, I'll use it for personal web browsing, playing games, and amusing myself with apps like GateGuru, even though it's limited to US airports.

United now has WiFi on their transcontinental flights, and while it's slow, it would be nice to do a quick email check, surf a bit, or even IM between movies without having to haul out the laptop and wait for it to boot up. Besides, even in business class there's not much room for a laptop and a snack on the tray table.
