    So bought myself a 16gb and it says I have 13.4gb free. I believe it's slightly different for all iPads. Not complaining. Just wondering what the rest of you all are getting? I understand some of it is used for iOS.

    I upgraded from a 32gb original to a 64gb new iPad and after restoring my backup and syncing with iTunes I only have 20gb left. Whatever space you think you need go up at least one model.

    Take into account that the iOS takes space as well...

    This explains the Marketing HDD capacity and Real World HDD Capacity

    A 250GB is not going to be 250GB, it is closer to 237GB. Yoru not losing anything, just a difference between what the Marketers define as a gigabyte as to the math behind it.
