    I pre-ordered a 16gb.

    With all the media streaming and cloud services, along with my iPhone acting as my iPod, 16gb was more then enough for me on the ipad 2. I assume it'll be much of the same with the ipad 3

    My philosophy is buy the most capacity, be it a truck, chain saw, snow plow, or tablet. My 64GB PlayBook still has 40GB available, so I think I've got some room. Of course, that would change if we had as many apps as you do, but it is what it is.

    I don't have much experience with iCloud, but I'm here to learn.

    HD content will just take up that much more room... apps, high res pics, movies, games, aren't getting any smaller... buy the most capacity you can afford right now

    16GB for me. I currently have the 16GB iPad2 and that's plenty of storage I don't really store music on it and I have Dropbox, box.net and plenty of other online storage to keep me happy.

    for my iPads, I always go for the lowest storage. 16GB that is - it's even huge for my use anyway. I only max out on my iPhone. I currently have the 64GB iPhone.

    It depends upon preference though. I have a friend who does the opposite. That's how I do it probably because I have more music which I like storing on the iPhone than the iPad.

    I paid $729 for an AT&T 32GB iPad when they came out in 2010. I have never filled it up and only transfer movies form iTunes to the iPad as I want to watch them. I think I'll go with the 16GB this time because I don't want to spend more than $500 considering a new model will be out in another year. I might also get the Apple Care Plus Plan for $99 since it includes accidental coverage now.

    I go with 16. I had a 32 once, but never used the extra space. Because I stream pretty much all of my media, the only thing taking up space are the big apps.

    16GB iPad + Air Video + iTunes Match (or any music streaming software) + Pogoplug = everything I need or want.

    I went 32. Thats what i have now with the 1 I have a bunch of magazines and newspapers. That seems to take up a lot. Would rather have more space and not need than not enough. For the extra $100 it's worth it to me.

    For the first time, I'm going 32GB for the new iPad. Sixteen gigs fills up rather quickly on my iPhone, I cant even imagine how fast that will fill up on a retina display iPad!

    You can stream about almost anything to the ipad, i felt like no need of such a large GB. Save the money for accessories.

    i have a 32 now, so stepped up to a 64... i figure with the higher res, more space will be needed (especially 1080p movies)... streaming is great... if traveling, can't always guarantee a fast connection, and streaming over cellular will just blow through the limits...

    I went 32 because I am WiFi only so may need to carry content for times when I can't reach the cloud. If I had LTE, I think I'd go 16 and just access from the cloud.

    I have a 16gb iPad2 now and I'm finding that a lot of the games I like are a bit on the large side (Order & Chaos + 1gb, couple of 500mb+ games..). I opted for the 64gb "new iPad" this time because I don't want to hit the ceiling when I start messing around with 1080p video editing, etc.

    Err on the side of caution for me.

    How much space does a full 1080p movie take up? That got me to thinking. I might go higher storage for that reason.

    I ordered the 64GB even though my touchpad was 32GB. I figured you can never have enough memory on a device with such a high resolution screen! I am a photographer and I would like to use the iPad to carry some pictures with me wherever I go (photoshop when I have a spare moment!) and edit videos on the go. Even though wifi is almost everywhere I go... at home my "at&t DSL" speeds are ridiculous so using the cloud is annoying with these snailnet speeds !

    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.
