    Hi there
    I'm about to get an iPad which just came out here in Thailand.
    I told a friend who's had one a while that I would go for the largest drive, 64gb.
    He said he only uses about 8gb of his 32gb because he constantly uploads to a cloud for online storage.

    I've done a quick search without success.
    How does this work?
    Can it be free?

    Is it true I can't send data back and forth with bluetooth? Can I send and receive data to my Macbook or do backups to an external HD with the USB cable?

    cheers John

    You can send data back and forth between a computer by using goodreader or airshare. It is pretty easy.

    Goodreader for iPad is like the swiss army knife of apps - great for documents and media files and you can upload and download between various accounts and storage services. Can't recommend it enough.

    DropBox is a great service as well.

    Personally I get by fine with the 16GB, but if you watch a lot of video or you're on the road, the higher capacities might be handy.
