    With so many iPad 3 combinations do you have any regrets about the particular SKU you ended up buying?

    I traded the 32GB in for the AT&T 64GB Black 4G iPad this past Monday and have no regrets at all. I love the New iPad! :)

    I went from the 32GB white iPad 2 to 64GB black iPad 3 and have no regrets. I have 10GB of comics and 20GB of photos. The gorgeous screen means I do so much more reading than I did before and the novelty of the white model has worn off too. I was considering the 4G option but I'd use it only in emergencies and my phone can be used to thether anyway.

    What a sad poll. I don't want to participate in some morbid regrets free for all.

    Why bother? Why feed some people's need to castigate themselves.

    I could have gone down to 16GB. I'm nowhere near my 32GB, and don't foresee it happening. May downgrade.

    very happy with my 16gb wifi iPad, have thought about upgrading to the Verizon 4G version but really don't feel like paying $120 extra for something I may never or will hardly use

    I got exactly what I expected, it works just fine. No regrets.

    But then again it wasn't an impulse buy :)

    Erm no, its not a sad poll. 80% of people are happy with their purchase and the other 20% realised how they thought they'd use their iPad was not how they ended up using them and therefore they can just exchange for a more appropriate model.

    I bought the 64 4G so I would have no regrets.

    I swapped my pre-ordered 16GB Wifi Black for a 64GB Wifi White at the local Apple Store. Came to the realization that I wanted to store some videos on the thing instead of just streaming (until I can tether 4G from iPhone, that is ;) ) and that I wanted my iPad to match my white iPhone. :)

    I got a 64gb VZ on Saturday, but I'm thinking of downgrading to 64gb wifi. What's the :apple: store return policy? I know I can just call to find out, but I'm feeling lazy today (haven't had my coffee yet). :eek:

    It's not really a regret as I am still happy that I got the 64gb ATT version, however, I wonder if I will ever actually pay for carrier service. Most of the time I am on wifi and a carrier is not needed.

    I have no regrets.
    But...
    I pre-ordered a16GB from Apple
    I bought a 32GB on Launch Day from Best Buy
    Returned 16GB
    Found 5 dead pixels on 32GB and Apple replaced it
    Went to Best Buy right after I left the Apple Store and exchanged it for a 64GB

    Same here.

    Well, buying one on launch day was unexpected, but I knew what model I was going to get.

    I bought a 32gb black wifi at launch and exchanged it for a 64gb black ATT. I have no regrets. I feel like I have the ultimate iPad.:D

    You're missing a choice:

    "Who cares"

    Return it and get what you really want. BUT....I dont want to know about it or read about it.

    I exchanged my perfect pre-order 32GB AT&T for a not so perfect 64GB AT&T...and then that for a perfect 64GB AT&T
    1st iPad and I'm very happy with it!

    Very Happy with my choice of 16GB. People whined, etc.. that 16GB is not enough with Retina.

    With all the Apps I use on a daily basic a games I'm sitting at 9.6GB free.

    Previous two iPads were 32s. Bought 64 this time b/c I was nearing the limit on the iPad 2 and figured the HD would kick me over. When I set up my new iPad though I started fresh and only installed apps/games I actually use at least once a month. I also did not reinstall mags that were months old.

    After set up I had 123 apps, 2 movies, 18 books on my new iPad and was using about 17GBs. I doubt I'll ever use anywhere near 64. So next year it's back to 32 for me.
