    I ordered a 64g device. I have a 16 gig now and I feel very stifled.

    Depends on format and length, but when I rip a BD movie from Blu-ray disc to PC in the iPad format, it generally goes about a gig.
    Average, as mentioned, is about 1GB. I have managed to get a few to 700MB though and maintain the video. This required that I reduce the sound output to STEREO , as oposed to 5.1, as I watch with headphones...

    For the OP: if you can swing the $... I'd recomend always going to the larger.

    Had a 16gb first gen and 16gb iPad 2. I should have leared from my first gen that 16gb was just not enough. I struggled with video, photos, music and apps and having to comprise what I could keep on my 16GB. I wont go through that again. 32GB all the way.

    Also. all the apps that we currently have now on our iPads will get much bigger in size to take advatage of the retina display. I would factor that in also when it comes to storage decisions. Gizmodo had an app developer, cant remember which one, but it was like 32MB for the regular and then jumped to a sizable 120MB because it was going to be optimized for the new display.

    A heck of a lot of 120 MB apps fit into a few gig. To me, this is a matter of how often you'll be unable to reach the cloud or, for some other reason, you need to store locally a good deal of multimedia.

    A 32 gig iPad will hold 12 Blu-ray movies, dozens of apps, thousands of music tunes, hundreds of photos and a few hundred books I'd guess and do it easily. That's probably a modest list too.

    Get 32.
    You might just want a few movies on it for when there is no internet access to pass the time.

    Yeah, depends on what you use it for. I fall into the "get the most you can afford" camp. My 64gb iPad1 is usually near capacity with just apps and movies, and with the higher resolution most of those are going to take up considerably more space on the new iPad.

    Ive always had 16GB devices, and I find myself filling them up rather easily now. I opted for the 32GB ipad this time. Should be ok for a while.

    I would get the 32GB. I had a 16GB iPad and had to constantly manage the space and that's with no music or movies on it. I had a lot of magazines, games, photos. This time around, I got the 64GB so I don't have to worry about it and I can actually store video and music on it.
