So anyone with a 32gb thinking they should've gone 64gb instead?
Seeing the size of some of these apps and watching my storage space go down has got me thinking. Especially as more apps get updated in the future, room will get even tighter.

Got 64g. For the reason that I am departing from PCs forever!!! I have no need to use one anymore and anything I would of needed one for I can use the iPad for. I figured 64 because of the movies and photos I would keep stored. The only regret I have is...get the ATT version. Wish I had just paid for wifi. Doubt I'll ever us the LTE. I have an iPhone for the desperate times in need of internet. No regrets on 64 though. Probably could of bout the 32 iphone instead of 64 though.

When I went to purchase my Ipad, there were no 32G in stock, so I bit the bullet and got a 64G Wifi. Glad I did because right now I've got only 33g available.
Won't have to shuffle apps, movies, etc back and forth between Itunes to now.

I went with 64GB for the 3rd year in a row but I'm lamenting that I didn't go 128GB.
Seriously, I use handbrake (ipad preset) to convert .mkv's and now that I'm converting to 1080p instead of 720p the filesizes are about twice as large as before. Most films are approx. 4GB each now.

I have just over 8gb of music (about 50 or so CDs) and still have 16gb left over all. I doubt I'll be loading any movies. I'll just use Netflix for that and with Pandora I doubt I'll load too much more music. I will be loading a bucket load of pictures over time, but that'll take a hella lot of pics to use that up. My iPad Classic had 64gb, but I still had about 45 gb when I sold it.

After loading up my apps and all of my photos, my 32gb was almost used up, so I swapped for a 64gb. Of course, I don't have to keep all of those photos on my iPad, but I like having them there with iPhoto now available, and spending $100 to double the storage is worth it for me. I plan on loading up some HD content, too.

I also got the 64gb wifi one because Best Buy was out of everything else. With my usage, I good probably get away with a 16gb. But I may trade it in for a 32gb and make sure I have extra room in cause I need it. and save a couple of $ for accessories.

I actually traded in my 32GB for a 64GB today, and I'm insanely happy I did. It probably helps that it's my first 64GB iPad, so I'm a little ecstatic about all the room.
I only installed about half of the apps that I wanted on the 32GB and I knew it wasn't going to be enough room. With the 64GB, I still have 42GB left, and that's after installing ALL the apps I wanted, plus a crap ton more!
So happy I went with the 64GB.

I have a 64 and love the space I had only a 16 before and realized real quick how fast it fills up .. I would def love to go pc free but I would need atleast 250 to do that but 64 is def worth it and I really don't ever have to worry about space

Nope. Only use the hard drive for what you absolutely need, and use cloud storage for everything else. I keep a 'desert island' set of songs and just stream everything else, stream movies/use netflix, upload any photos/videos I take and delete them off my iPad periodically.
Kind of annoying at first, but you never have to worry about losing your data

Not at all... I'm not a gamer (aside from little stuff like Draw Something or Words With Friends), only keep movies on there for flights, and music is rarely kept on it. (utilize iTunes Match this year, comparing to AudioGalaxy)
32GB has proven to be MORE than enough, once I got out of trying to fill it with my 10 favorite movies or so, and EVERY app I've ever purchased.

Got a 64 and probably would have gone 128 if Apple made it... IMO an extra $200 (over the baseline 16) is well worth it for future proof. However, my GF got a 32 and it seems to be more than enough for her...

I like things to stay on the device (eg magazines) and found I was always worried abou space on my 32 iPad 2. I like the room that the 64 gives me without stressing that I'm going to run out. I also anticipate taking more videos with this iPad and also expect that apps themselves will take up more space when they are updated.

I think a 128GB version - at the current pricing scale - would price these things out of reasonability, especially the data/wifi versions. You're talking $300 more than the base version - nearly $1000 for a data-enabled one. I love the iPad and all, but in NO WAY should it be priced like a far more capable machine, such as a laptop... even a MacBook Air. 64GB's probably as big as they'll go with these, without redoing their pricing. (which I don't see happening)

I just returned the 32GB iPad today and purchased the AT&T 64GB 4G model from Target. I ended up going under 20GB of available usage on the 32GB after loading it up with more kid videos that I took on my 4S and a few more apps. So the $100 extra that I spent on the 64GB model is worth it to me in the end since I won't have to worry about having enough memory for a long time.
