    I waste a lot of money, but one $100 I regret was getting a 32GB iPad. iPhone I understand with the camera and music you need more storage, but iPad? why? iPad is anyway useless without internet. I have my entire iTunes music there but I never listened to one song on it (I can't take it when I workout), also I put a couple of movies and games, and still lots of free space.

    My next iPad will be a 16GB iPad

    One word. Apps

    My previous ipad was 16 gigs because I had your exact thought process. I don't put any music movies or anything like that so I figured why not go for cheap. What I didn't expect was how big retina ipad apps were. Biggest mistake ever. Something like GarageBand takes up almost a gig. Any of those free 3D games by Gameloft/other big companies take 1-2 gigs each. Also don't forget that you start out with only 12.8 gigs and not the full 16. After downloading a handful of apps it's already full.. And I certainly want to use my ipad how it was intended.. by being able to use the huge App Store and not having to worry about space

    I see your point. I played so much with the apps at first and downloaded and bought games and stuff, but then I really end up using my iPad 90% to browse the internet, read flipboard magazines (and of course the incredible ebay app!), and do some light work and expense tracking.

    I have around 20 apps on my iPad, most of which are internet-based 20-40 MB each, and maybe 8 games or so not exceeding 5 GB

    Is this true? What percentage of apps are 1 to 2 gigs each?

    Unfortunately so. GarageBand increases in storage requirements as you save your compositions. My compositions took up 200 megs and they weren't even that complex

    Will Best Buy price match with Staples? Hawaii doesn't have a staples, but I'm hoping I could show them the online price.

    Amazing!

    The $450 iPad air is now sold out online, keep checking, they might bring in more stock

    It's amazing how popular apple products are, and with a 10% discount... Forget it! People go nuts!

    We'll they are offering others as we'll not just the 16gb. I picked up the 32 myself. Had to order online though as our staples closed down last year.

    wish I had seen this earlier! I'm trying to get a deal on the 32gb version. Any chance it will come back in stock?

    If you have an Amex card, you can also get an extra $25.00 back on a $75.00 Staples purchase if you register for the offer on their web site. Takes the 16GB Air down to $425 without having to deal with gift cards.
