I'm getting my first Ipad and am torn between the 16gb and 32gb model. I will mainly use it for web surfing, watching online videos, etc. My thought is that I may not need the 32gb since icloud allows you to stream music, etc. Is there a flaw in this logic? Do the apps take up a ton of space? I just dont want to regret it. Thanks.

App space varies, the more graphic intense apps have bigger size.

You can only stream if you have wifi so that might not be the best solution when you're on the road but most places have wifi nowadays.

Oh so the icloud won't work over 4G for itunes songs? I did not realize that. Definitely an argument in favor of more storage.

It should work on 4g. But if you only have the wifi model and don't have access to wifi when you're out and about, you won't be able to stream anything unless you have 4g or find a wifi hotspot.
