I recently purchased a New iPad from the Apple online store, assuming at the time that 16GB would be satisfactory for my use. However, almost immediately after completing the transaction, I developed an annoying feeling that it wouldn't be enough space. I am by no means a heavy user; I mainly deal with essays, PDFs, other word documents and various books. However I wanted to also store photos, with enough space for large apps and possibly movies/tv shows for when I travel. I started researching and seeing how other people felt about the amount of space they need, and became worried that I'd made a mistake. I read a few threads and made my mind up that 16GB would not be enough space, which perhaps is evidence of how persuasive the experience of a stranger can be. I disregarded the 64GB completely as I always considered that too excessive for my personal use. The crucial factor for me was that in purchasing a piece of fantastic equipment that I would be using every single day, I did NOT want to find myself in the position of constantly deleting, changing, and updating what I kept on my iPad to stop myself from running out of space. I decided that I would need the extra space, so as soon as my New iPad arrived, I packaged it up to be collected by a courier without even opening it, and placed an order for the 32GB. It proved to be a good decision, as I have since discovered that given my user habits, I would have never managed with only 16GB of space. I know I would've saved myself a lot of hassle if I'd just bought the 32GB in the first place, but at least it's done now! I would urge anyone not on the strictest of budgets to take the plunge and go for that extra space, it's truly worth it for such an extraordinary device!
