    Personally, I'd go with a 16 or 32 GB, depending on price. I wouldn't spend more than $400 on a brand new iPad Mini, so it would be the deciding factor for me. My gut feeling is saying $250/$350/$450/$550 price points, so 16 would be my answer. What about you?

    Depends on what you plan to use it for.

    Me personally, I always go with the cheapest version. So that would be the 8gb at $250.

    Most likely 16, as I won't be putting any music on it.

    An 8GB suffices nicely for me. A few books, a movie, a game here and there and the web.

    I have my phone and classic for media.

    I haven't decided whether or not to get one yet, but if I do, I'd get the biggest capacity avaiable, so I voted for 64 GB.

    32gb for me. No music, some TV series and a couple of games.

    16GB 7" tablet for $350? No thanks. Not when the Nexus 7 costs $100 less at the same capacity. The OS is irrelevant; that's personal preference. Yea can't say iOS is worth more than Android or vice-versa. They would have to justify a $100 higher price. Now 64GB at that price would be great . . . but that won't happen.

    It depends on the price. I'll probably end up buying a base model, so whatever that is will be the capacity I'll get.

    If the 8GB would cost US$ 199.00 I would get it. For more than that I would actually think 10x if I need and want one in the first place.

    For 199 I would get one for fun at home for the bed when my wife uses the iPad2 and my iPhone 4S is too small to read comfortably for a bit on the web before sleeping.

    I voted for the 8gb as depending on price I want to get base wifi+cellular model which will hopefully be 8 or 16gb as a complement to my iPad 2 (which I'm only using 6.2 if 28.6gb right now because I haven't put music or video on there after the iOS 6 clean install)

    This would be a movie work horse for me so 32gb would keep me on the cross trainer long enough.

    Gee, thanks for that - what if they put Win 8 on it? :p

    For me I'll probably take the 64GB version so I won't have to worry about running out of space. I plan to use this a lot for school, reading PDFs, synchronising with evernote (notes, homework, readings, handouts), dropbox & sugarsync (both of which sync with my desktop and MBA with lots of content for school, research, etc.). And of course a form factor like this, the games will be excellent! I had a gen 1 iPad and the games on it were tons of fun, I used it every day for games, so this form factor, which is much more easily held in your hands would be great for games. Can't wait!

    If these prices are correct, then none. 350$ for a 16gb, for that I rather just buy a 16gb ipad 2, or add another 100$ and just get a 3.

    I have an iPad 3 so if I buy a mini it would probably be used strictly for books, checking email, light web surfing, I'd get the base model.

    For me the minimum storage option is 32GB, especially in today's heavy content era. I'm still deciding wheter to get an iPad mini or the new iPod touch. If the Mini comes at a good price for 32GB model then I'll get one, and by good price I mean no more than 100$ equivalent storage iPod touch. If not then welcome iPod touch 32GB 5th gen:)

    I am going to buy a 16 GB (which I selected for the poll) for my Girlfriend for Christmas. She has a 32 GB iPhone, and she wouldn't need her music on the iPad, but 8 GB still wouldn't be enough.

    I would buy a 64 GB for myself. I may do so in the future... but it really depends on how much "slower" it is compared to full size iPad.

    I plan on buying at least 2 in case there is a shortage and I can make a profit selling it on eBay or Amazon.

    I'm wondering if Apple will use a strategy like they're currently using with the iPod Touch. Sell 8 and 16GB versions with lower specs (older chip and no retina) while selling 32 and 64GB varieties with better specs (newer chip and retina display).

    Many are thinking that this is going to be a secondary iPad but I'm in the camp that believes that once people start using a more portable device then they will end up using the Mini MORE than the larger one. So Im surprised at so many 8GB. I can see how it is usable if you dont plan on using any apps, but why would anyone want to limit their possibilities like that? To save $100?
