    I think most of us are a little indecisive when it comes to dropping a significant amount of money on purchasing the latest and greatest gadgets.
    I had my last second decisions and still ended up rethinking my purchase.
    In the end, I'm satisfied. Why? I have the option of adding Internet and enough room for the possibility of bigger sized apps.

    So what size(s) did you end up with? And why?

    (Of course if you got more than 1 iPad.)

    64GB.

    Because they don't make them any bigger and I'd be kicking myself if I ever ended up needing the space and not having it.

    Chose the 16g because I don't store video or music on my iPad permanently. The only thing I keep on there are apps.

    64GB.

    Because I actually use the device to watch a ton of video. And I always have hundreds of apps installed.

    I would buy a 128GB model if I could.

    Because 16 wasn't enough. :rolleyes:

    I have tons of apps and games take up quite a bit of space. Too lazy to manage apps. I currently have about 5GB left on my 32GB without any videos/music. I'm an app hoarder.

    32GB - This if my first iPad, I figured to first see how 32 works out before jumping straight to 64 but I knew 16 was just to restricting for my needs.

    For those that got more than one, I'd edit but I think it's too late now. Lol

    16gb. Dont plan on storing media on it, icloud and other cloud services will take care of my media. I also already have an iphone 32gb.

    I went 64GB this time. Got the 32GB on the original iPad, and was pretty close to filling it up. I figured if I was going to upgrade, I may as well get the largest available. I've regretted not buying enough storage, but never regretted buying too much (is there even such a thing?).

    32GB. I originally ordered 16 but I realized it wouldn't be enough so I swapped it out launch day.

    64gb. Why? Because I could afford it, having planned and budgeted for it.

    I agree. This is why I got the 64GB one. My Manager told me that I wouldn't need all that room because of the Cloud. I prefer not to depend on the Cloud.

    64GB Because I have a lot of Music Making apps and Store My Sounds/Samples on it for easy access.

    Starting with the iPad 1 all have been 64GB.

    Never regretted having the space.

    If they had a 128GB I'd by that

    I pre-ordered a 32, but today I decided to exchange it for a 64. After I loaded stuff on the 32 I wasn't happy with the space I had left.

    The exchange took maybe two minutes. Local Apple store is awesome! And my 64 is just as perfect as my 32 was, no back bleed, no yellowing. I'm a happy camper.

    64GB - I do not want to worry about storage since I store A LOT of photos on it, movies when I travel and of course apps.

    I went with the middle of the road 32GB (white, WiFi only).

    Also because of the increased size of apps and images. I can already tell it was a good choice.

    I picked 64 but I really would have liked a 128 MB! Can't have enough space with apps taking upwards of 800MB (Ashphalt6 for example) and 1080 videos going at 1.7 Gb per hour show. Space goes fast!
