    I'm not sure I'd buy a 64gb again with the next generation. Haven't come close to having space constraints, but then again good to have that flexibility and knowledge that it's there. I'm torn on this, and will just have to see.

    You betcha!

    64GB first gen, 32GB 2nd gen, 64GB 3rd gen.

    It was a mistake dropping down to 32 for the iPad 2. I was missing out on having all my PDFs, movies, apps, etc all at once, so I splurged on the 3rd gen (even went with LTE :))

    I definitely would - I travel quite a bit, and I'm very indecisive - I like to have my iPad chock full of movies whenever I leave my hometown.

    I also love tossing my photos into albums - so that takes up a good chunk on it's own.

    I've only had the thing for a few months and I've already had to become choosy with what I put on there - I'm currently rocking about 4.5 GB free (which is actually the most I've had available in quite some time)...

    In the Coe of months I've had my 64gb iPad I've already had to remove the music from it to make space, so yes. Unless a 128gb model has come out.

    Mine doesn't have enough room. I travel frequently and mine is filled with Apps, books, and movies. With the HiDef capabilities I now carry less movies than I could with my ipad2 64gb.

    So yes I would, and I would even buy a 128gb

    The only reason I wouldn't get a 64 gig is if Apple released a 128GB model. I have a lot of movies, music, apps, books and documents that I like to have access to even if there is no available Internet connection. The cloud is good for some things but without that data connection it's useless.

    It would be nice if Apple could bump up the storage space and offer 3 choices 32/64/128.

    If the 32GB iPad price is $700+ imagine a 128GB one.

    I'm ready and the 32GB is only $600.

    I wish I had a 64, but I'm sure I'd just fill It with more games that I never play.

    What exactly do you store on your iPad that would require this much?

    16is fine for me. If you keep the same movies on and never watch them. Well that's just dumb. Plus. Netflix

    I don't have an iPad and it's mainly for the space issue. 256GB would be great. It would allow for more photo storage (I clear out my iPhone once I hit 3,000 just for example) that you could keep coming back to for editing, it would allow for your huge iTunes library to sit in there (I mainly use Spotify because I can't hold my entire library on any of the iPhone/iPad models without just using it solely for that and keeping it on your computer hard drive is a waste), and it would make working with Paper, Sketchbook Pro, Photoshop Touch, GarageBand, etc much enjoyable because you'll always have the room to work with and it could enable developers to allow for more layers and advanced tools.

    10GB for documents, 10GB for photos, 100GB for music, the rest for apps/games = Perfect.

    Agreed. iPhone has my music (don't need a second copy on my iPad) and if I wanna put some movies on, I can toss on 20ish hours of MP4s. I don't need to store tons of media on another device. That's my opinion however.

    I'll always just get the biggest one. They sell better when it's time to upgrade.

    i had 64gb on my first gen but i never really came close to reaching it so i opted for the 32gb on the new ipad.

    However, for others 16gb won't cut it. I keep a lot of documents and nets on my iPad; and like to have a choice of movies r TV when traveling. 64gb let's me load enough so I can have a decent set of choices w/o having to transfer files from my Mac, plus Netflix isn't available when traveling outside the US. Different solutions for different needs.
