With 16gb option being out there, I'm wondering which size people's are choosing and why.

By the estimated shipping date the 64gb is more popular than the 128gb in space gray.

I hate that feeling of "I wish I could put more movies on this but I can't."

128 for me.

Plus the larger modules are a little faster ;)

(not appreciable in real world usage)

I'm going 64GB, I was planning on getting the 64GB before I knew of the price drop but I'd rather take 64GB at the lower price than pay that same as what I thought I would have been paying and get 128GB. 128GB just seems like too much overkill personally. Unless you store a lot of movies on it, then you could fill that up in no time ;)

I.decided to go with 64gb and spend $75 on the leather case instead as I like the leather case for iPhone.

Hopefully I don't regret later

128. I travel a lot and store a lot of movies for flights and got tired of having to rotate them out with the 64gb old iPad I had. So that is why I got the 128 Air and if I get an Air 2, it will also be 128.

I don't need more than 64, but I went with 128. There's just something about purchasing a maxed out model of something that pleases my psyche.

The cost difference is nothing just a night out on the town. 128g is the way to go I'm always over 64g as well my wife with hers. :cool:

Just sold my 3 year old iPad 4, 128gig, 4g for $500 cannot wait for the faster Air 2 128 gig, 4g.

I got a 128GB iPad Air and never even used 64GB, despite loads of games I don't touch clogging it up. I went for a 64GB Air 2.

128gb for sure.

Apple has me by the *****, they know it and they know I will climb the $100 ladder of good better best every time. I did come close on my old 128gb Air, So not like I will not use it, but heck if they had 256gb I would find a way to fill that up too:D

I remember gas under $1 and 5mb of storage cost $400, so $100 for 64gb of extra storage is a steal, $50 to fill up my car still feels like robbery:D

Not like you would ever have needed it, or even be able to get it, but 64gb back then would have filled a house and cost over $200,000.
