Which iPad did you pre-order/reserve and why?
If you pre-ordered or reserved, which iPad did you go with? (wifi, 3g, what size?) and why did you chose the one you did?
I went with the 16GB Wi-Fi version because I want it now and will be getting a 3G version as well so I'm keeping costs down up-front so I can splurge at the end. Yes, it's a sickness and no I don't want the cure!
(And I'll be driving 4hrs each way to Albany to pick it up!)

I got the 64 gig WiFi version. It will probably be the only one I get, this generation anyway. My phone already has pretty good internet on it, and if I need it in a pinch I can turn it into a wifi hotspot or tether it (not an iPhone). I did want the extra space though. Can't wait!

i actually went all out with the 64GB 3G. In the end i decided on 3G cause i live by MobileMe and my stupid work doesn't allow wifi, and I needed to be able to get stuff on demand.Doc

64gb Wifi + 3G. More space for bigger (HD) files as this will be more of a media device than my iphone as well as more of a family device. 3G because it seems convenient, ATT blankets my area with 3G, jailbroken tether depends on future jailbreaking and running down my iphone battery, and the GPS will be good for location based apps.

I will be getting the 32GB 3G when they become available in Canada. I was going to order in the states but it was just such a hassle I decided a month more wont kill me, that much. I'm getting 3G because if I do decide to use it I will have it and when the 2nd gen becomes available it will be in more demand than Wifi only I'm thinking.can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

I have to admit, I canceled my pre-order for the 64 Gig WiFi iPad...
... because I just couldn't resist opting for the 64 Gig WiFi+3G version instead. Haven't you taken enough of my money, Apple? Why did you insist on parting me from ever increasing amounts of my hard-earned cash monies?

I pre-ordered the 32GB wifi+3G version. It was a difficult decision to go with the 3G, but I think it will be worth it in the end. The GPS chip in the 3G units was a huge factor in my decision. I also thought about all of the places that do not yet have free wi-fi where it would be nice to have the option to immediately add a 3G data plan. Some hotels do not yet have free wi-fi (some still have wired internet), some airports do not offer free wi-fi, bus and train rides, roadtrips (perhaps with the family or friends), and camping. Most likely I will upgrade to the newer hardware when the 2nd generation and so forth is released, but I feel having the 3G version also makes my 1st Gen iPad more sell-able.

64gb WIFI + 3G
No reason not to go max space and 3G, never want to run out of space
I'll be loading up with movies, TV shows and audio books
Im hoping a 3rd party will come out with a Camera attachment and App that swivels and allows
switching the camera both front and back, that would be cool.

Having just ordered the 64GB 3G iPad, I really wish I had it right now as I sit in a sofa chair observing some distance-learning and having no real comfortable way to use my laptop. It's heating up my lap as I type this! I look forward to having an iPad which should be a lot easier to manage.Well-armed with an iPhone 4 and AT&T 4G 64GB iPad 3

Went with the 64GB 3G model. I want to have data wherever I go (or at least wherever AT&T decides to work), and that will assure it. I see the limitations of my girlfriend's iPod touch and I don't like having to hunt for WiFi hotspots to get basic connectivity. Plus with 64GB I can get most of my music and some movies on the device. Finally, having the 3G chip means I'll get better triangulation for maps. Sa-weet.
