    Is it only the storage that is different or is the 128GB one faster than the 32GB one? I think my usage is below and around 25GB.

    Do note, I believe available space on the 32GB model is around 25GB so if you're close to that, you're already borderline.

    As for speed, the CPU/GPU/RAM should be the same. Storage on 128GB model is expected to be faster due to increased parallelism (think of NAND flash as having internal RAID-0).

    I do wish they had offered a 64GB model. My current usage is about 42GB and a 64GB model would have been perfect, but there is no way I could have gotten by with 32GB model, luckily I was able to use my previous 64GB iPad for usage comparison before making the purchase and was clearly over 25GB on that unit as well. I went with the 128GB model.

    i never thought i would get close to 113Gb with the 128gb model but now i can put movies on it and not worry about filling it to max space

    I picked the 32GB, as I use it mainly for note taking at work, and work mail. For movies and other entertainment, I also have a 12" rMB that is not much bigger / heavier to carry around either.

    The only reason I would want to upgrade is, when I decide to use the iPad Pro for photography as well - to take a quick look at the pictures taken from the camera, light retouching etc.

    You should think how you want to use the iPad Pro and take it from their, as everyone's use case is different. What I always recommend is to get the largest size you can afford / are willing to spend, as that is usually a leading factor :)
