Apple got me... HA HA HA

I got online today to see if my local store (Omaha) had any iPad mini 16gbs in...to my amaze, they did. But after the process of ordering, when I placed the order they said they were out of the.

I quickly hurried and went to see if they had an 32gbs..they did, so I placed my order quickly and got it.

I got too excited. I should have waited. I won't ever use 32gbs.

I stream from Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, read books, and surf the web. I don't buy iTunes movies and don't listen to music unless it's from Pandora.

Really regretting my decision.

You will love it and the 32 GB will have better resale value. No need for buyer's remorse - you have 14 days to return it no questions asked and can probably find a 16 GB before then.

You got yourself because you just had to have a Mini.

Order the one you want, and return the one you don't.

You won't regret the 32gb iPad Mini. I ended up getting a 32GB iPad 3 & most of the time I never use more than 10-12gb on it. I have had occasions that was glad I went for the 32gb option. I've loaded it up a few times with movies for trips, stored a lot of photos on it for a family event, etc. and was happy to have the extra storage space. resale value is usually a bit higher as well if you plan to upgrade.

HA HA HA...you guys need to chill...I said, "HA HA HA" in the title...

I do realize this was my mistake. I was just saying that I had to have the newest apple product.

I can see why so many people get frustrated on this board, you guys are just a little insane and take yourself way too seriously.

The 32g isn't bad. Extra storage. Worst case keep trying to order the 16 and just return the one you don't want/need

32GB seems to be the correct amount. The apps are getting bigger. I think it's a good idea to get 32 now..

Though the rest of your post didn't reflect that.

This is always the most pervasive issue with any forum: text doesn't convey implied emotion. If you read your post without looking at the title, it seems like you're being quite hard on yourself. I completely understand your point, but anyone who spends a lot of time on the board is going to glance at the title just enough to get the main idea.

I'd first planned on getting the 16GB, because I thought I could easily get by with that little amount of storage, using Dropbox, SugarSync and iCloud. Used to have a gen 1 iPad 64GB and never, never needed nearly that much space, not even half. In the end with my mini I decided to give myself a bit more room than 16GB and get the 32GB version, and I'm so glad I did. There are so many apps that I've loaded onto the thing, especially games, which can be real space hogs, but they are so worth it, you'll never regret the extra space. At this point I'm having to uninstall some apps and games so I can install new apps from time to time.<yikes!>

I think the storage sweet spot for me will be 64GB, to which I'll upgrade when they release the gen 2 mini in the autumn next year.

Congrats on your new purchase and enjoy it! I've had mine since they launched it and the excitement still hasn't diminished at all and I use it every day.

I picked up a 16GB mini last week...ideally I'd like a 32GB and was looking to exchange it. Then decided to keep the extra $100, use the 16GB mini till mini 2 comes out, sell and get the 32GB mini 2...the lower the GB the better the resale relative to original retail cost. For example, the 64GB LTE will net the worst resale and biggest loss, the 16GB WiFi the best...

Man! It is always exciting to see someone post **** I normally would. I could die now and this site would be in no short supply of sarcasm and wit.

OP,
You can return it, no worries.

waiting for the Delaware Apple Store to get the Black/Slate model in 64GB LTE-Verizon in stock. i live 42 highway miles from that store and it's 0% sales tax.

with a civic that gets 38mpg highway, you do the math. it saves me ~$30


i'm also checking Best Buy but for some odd reason they don't seem to allow you to check in-store inventory on their website. very odd...

32GB is perfect...I had 16GB ipad and there is not enough to add apps I need.
So far I have 30 apps with only 5GB used. I can use for more videos in the future.

32GB is the perfect size, and I'd love to just see it become the base model capacity for all iDevices.

What most people don't realize is that Apple doesn't list the actual capacity you can use. The 16GB will only have like 12-14GB remaining after iOS uses some space. Some day, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow- but some day you will regret getting 16GB and want the 32GB. It's happened to me where I got the 8GB iPhone 3G and wanted the 16GB later on- after I got the 16GB iPhone 4 when it was first released I wanted more capacity.

People tend to underestimate their capacity needs and won't know that they needed more when they need it. At home I have a total of 9TB of storage capacity, I don't even know what I fill up the hard drives with but it ended up being that way.
