    Which one will you buy?

    Is 128GB really necessary?

    it depends on how you are going to use it? personally i will be putting a lot of movies on mine so i went for the 128, i would always get more space than you think you need if you can afford it.

    Really debating between the 32GB or 128GB.

    I have a 64GB iPhone 6+ and can't even fathom how someone uses 128GB. However, this is an iPad - and i've never owned one before so I don't know. I plan on renting and streaming a lot of movies and textbooks.

    Maybe i'll bite the bullet and get 128GB.

    That is my conundrum.

    I have a 128GB iPhone 6 plus, I still have 90GB of free space, I really don't know how to use it.

    I have a 64GB iPad Air 2, I still have 43GB of free space...

    Apple should have a 64GB option....

    If you have the money i would go with 128 just to be safe (say you get into movies and whatnot and start wanting them on there) drawings and notes and whatnot being stores will take up space on there also if you buy he pencil..
    If I had the money id go 128 but gotta go 32..

    A 64GB would be the answer to everything.

    I plan to do some video and photo editing on it when I'm away from my iMac so I got the 128.

    If the storage was easily expandable I may have opted for the 32 but we all know how the iDevices are...

    definitely 128gb. 32gb is simply not enough. u pay more, but part of that increase in subsidized bc you will command a higher resale value when u decide to sell it in 1-2 years. obviously wont get the $150 marginal increase back in 1-2 years, but i would think u can charge $80 more bc u have the higher storage. from that perspective, u are only paying $70 more for the 128gb versus the 32gb. i made all thsoe numbers up, but hopefully u get the point. some may say that $80 premium is too high, but in 1-2 years, i think the uselessness of that 32gb model will be magnified as people expect more stroage at that point in the future. so people would be willing to pay more for the larger 128 versus 32. make sense?

    I went with the 128gb... funny because every other ios device i own is (and have owned has been) the base model and it has always been enough, but I figured it's my christmas present to myself and you only live once. :)

    Definitely 128 GB for your photos. Everyone knows the bigger the iPad the better for taking photos in public!

    It's all about cloud now.. 32gb is fine with me. Netflix and all other apps like xfinity are all the same. My photos are on cloud as well. Oh and music too. I have unlimited hotspot from my company.

    Yet things like iCloud storage pushes the photos, documents, etc. to your actual device.

    32GB would be perfect given the cloud stuff these days!

    Imagine how nice it would be to have LTE on the 32gb model..... :-(

    You'd be absolutely foolish to get a 32gb for this device.

    This is coming from an owner :)

    Can anyone with a 32gb tell us how much storage you had left out of the box?

    For me 64GB would be perfect, but since they don't offer that, I'd go with 128GB.

    I think this is how most feel. Jumping from 32 to 128 is strange, but gets Apple lots of extra money.

    The upsell is strong with the iPad Pro, for real.

    Stick with 32GB of Storage, or you have to give Apple an extra $150 for 128GB. Apple annoys me with crap like this.

    64gig lte for 929 would solve all my iPad pro worries!!!

    We still have until Jan 8. I think there's a lot of time to download all your frequent apps. If you think it's not enough, you can always upgrade

    I'm going to go with the advice I give others when asked about this and go with 128GB. Always go with the MAX that you can afford, you will not go wrong.

    I got to hand it to Apple, this was a smooth move by them. To me 32gb is a slap in the face for a device with this power. If you are using it for video, photography, and drawing, you'll need 128gb.

    Decision would have been very interesting if it came with 64gb option.

    A 4K vid shot on 6s(+) of length would eat up a 32GB pro in short order

    the same reason that they have a 16gb iphone is why they have a 32gb ipad pro. They don't want you buying it.

    I think that businesses will be a big market for the iPad Pro and that lots of them will opt for the 32GB version. For example, the Pro has huge potential for retail operations. In my case, we'll be running a single application and storage will be temporary. 32GB is more than enough.
