102.1 MB update for me.

Ok... as the times draws near, I am thinking about getting an iPad. I originally bought the latest model iMac to play WoW, but I just don't have the time to make the game worthwhile. So, for basic internet browsing and basic e-mail, the ipad looks ok...

So, honest question: outside of movies, why would anyone need over 16GB?

edit: Ok, so the obvious answer (not-so-obvious to me) was music. Something so simple yet it didn't occur to me because I use Lala.com (before Apple's purchase), Pandora, and a more recent favorite, Grooveshark. I'm never without streaming access so I don't have a reason to keep so much music on my ipod, but I see now why others would.

downloading now

anyone know if you can browse the iBookstore?

UPDATE: You can have "Books" be an option under "Library", when you click it, it gives you a discription for both audiobooks and iBooks, but only lets you browse the audiobooks store.

Uhm...TV shows? Or lots and lots of music?

I'm sorry, but this kind of feels like an odd question. Do you have more than 16 GB of media in iTunes? I don't know the answer to that, only you do. And once you know what you have, I'm not really clear what you're asking us about...

You're just curious to know if anyone has more than 16 GB of music? Is that it? Yeah, many people do.

This is true -- I have > 80 GB on my MacBook Pro, with probably an extra 20 GB on an external drive -- which backs up all of this stuff too :)

Which is probably my only concern about getting the iPad -- I'd love to have <all> of my music on it at once... we'll see if I cave eventually :)

At least I'll have an iPhone by summer!

easily me. My music library alone is over 100GB and thats not TV Shows or Movies. My iPhoto is around 60GB itself. I pre-ordered the 64GB 3G but even double that isnt technically enough for all of my media (now, do I need to take all my content with me is of course a different question).

Why would you want to convert higher quality songs to 128 kpbs?

Just to save space on your iPhone, right?

I wonder if it'll save that much space on your iPhone, if it will take up extra space on your computer and really ruin your 320kbps songs.

It actually doesn't store the songs (when converted) on your hard drive

See here:

When the option to "Convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps AAC" is selected, are duplicate files added to the iTunes library?
No. The 128 kbps AAC versions of the files are not stored anywhere on the computer.
