Consider this for a moment. You are wanting to get an iPad but you are unsure of which version to get. You know you only want the wifi version but you also think that 16gb will not be quite enough space for you. The first thought is to get the next model up, the 32gb for $100 more. Before you make that choice take a second to think about a few things.... 1. If longevity is your concern and you will be keeping this iPad for 2-3 years, then resale value is not much of a concern because no matter which model you get, they will all resell for similar amounts after 2 to 3 years. 2. For $499 you are getting 16gb of space. For $100 more you are getting only 16gb more space. For $200 more you are getting 48gb of space. So best bang for your buck is going to be either the $499 model or the $699 model. The $599 32gb is actually the worst deal. Let me explain why. $100 for 16gb with the $599 model or... $100 per 24gb with the $699 model. It will come down to personal preference on how much data you will need but the $699 model iPad comes with 50% more data per dollar compared to the $599 model. If you plan on taking advantage of icloud to re-download apps, movies and music then you might not even need more than 16gb. If you plan on keeping most of your music and movies on your iPad then the 64gb iPad will most likely be the best deal.
