    For those of you that are "in line" to buy an iPad which one are you going to get or leaning towards? Curious to see which model is the most popular here -- no holds barred, middle of the road, or value.

    I'll buy the one that works on the Verizon network, or none at all.

    One mile up and soaring
    I want one but don't really need one. No doubt about it. Thought that with my iMac I could sell my MacBook and get one, but probably won't do that either. Not sold on the AT&T 3G thing. Just what I need another $15-30 a freakin' month recurring. I really hope AT&T offers a bundled iPhone/iPad data plan add on for those already with them with iPhones. I can't really use both at the same time anyway. Either that or tethering.

    Space: I usually go for max capacity so I don't shortchange myself. And 64GB is sexier than 16. But I also don't need all my music, a lot of photos, and some movies everywhere I go. There is syncing. So I may get a Rev. A to have it but go with a low end version. Or maybe a 32 just for some extra space. I know I could get the 3G and not add the service, or get it later or cancel it but still have it if I need it, rather than the other way around. I don't see myself deciding till I get to play with one in store. And find out more about AT&T's offerings.

    I'm still trying to decide wether I need 3G or not. The whole point of this device is mobility and connectivity, so wouldnt it make sense that internet would always be connected?

    On the other hand, the 3G models will be out later than the wifi only, the more $ doesnt affect me either way. Just not sure if i'd need it... but it may be something that I need once I don't have it and I'd rather not be stuck in that position.

    No, I specifically excluded a "not buying" category b/c I'm not interested in those that are not buying. I'm interested in what model is most popular among actual buyers.

    Right now I plan on getting the 32GB non 3G. I would probably prefer the 3G version but I don't want to wait the extra month to get it.

    This thread is for people who actually plan on getting an iPad. Frankly I think it's time for all the iPad bashers to move on. You've had your fun. I'm looking for some intelligent discussion of the features of the iPad. Not just "Fail" over and over and over.

    I will get the cheapest version 16gb, wifi, next year when they release a new version I will probably get the 3g with more storage.

    I still want to play one before I decide on buying it but I'm torn between the 16GB or 32GB w/o 3G.

    I would lean toward the 64GB model with 3G.

    I have a ton of HD content that would look really nice on that screen.

    64 3G for me, although the 3G bit needs clarifying for those outside of the U.S.
    3G because my boss won't even know that I'm fishing at a lake somewhere :)
    64gB because I like my music at a decent bitrate.

    Then why are you even in the iPad forum? There's a place to go talk about the iPhone, current and upcoming, and same for MBPs. Why come here and complain if you already know you don't like the product? You aren't making an constructive comments, you are simply repeating that you don't want and don't like this device. We get it.

    Ya, I figure in one or two gens the 3G/GPS will be in all of them, storage will be doubled across the board, front facing and maybe a back facing cam added, plus a few other things we aren't thinking of now. Go with the cheap version for revA and trade up in 18-24 months.

    I am actually doing a lot of shifting.

    1. 64GB WiFi + 3G. This will be replacing my Kindle DX and will be my new portable, replacing my Air. I will be developing in house apps to perform the functions I normally would on my air.

    2. 16GB/32GB WiFi (maybe 3G). This will be replacing my fiancee's Kindle. I will be shifting my Air to her and taking her Uni Macbook classic as my new test/development machine. This iPad will also be the living room pad for other functions.
