    I am just wondering what size did everybody get? I am thinking I want a 32GB but all of those are sold out around me. Do you think the 16 would be fine since I can use the cloud for alot now?

    32 gb wifi. I'm surprised it is sold out since there is plenty in my area. Not sure about apple but best buy and micro does for sure. If you cover shipping, I'll send one your way if you want one ASAP

    32g is sold out here in South Texas also. I was going to get the 16g, but decided that it just wasn't enough memory for me, especially since most of the 3rd generation apps are going to be larger files.

    I usually run about 30 apps, 600 songs, about 50-100 books, and have 5-10 movies on my Ipad. Right now I'm using just over half of my space, so for me it was a good decision to get the 64g.

    Ultimately it's what your wallet can manage but I will add that retina optimized apps are running 2x the size of non-optimized apps and that's unpacked. Keep that in mind as you make consider your purchase.

    Had a 32GB iPad 2... Went with 64GB for iPad 3?.. Retina apps, and HD movies will take up more space

    64gb, I had anoff with 16gb holding me back. I like to store a lot of stuff on my devices and since i plan on having this for 2 years 64gb made the most sense.

    I'm thinking of buying the 16GB 3rd gen iPad, but not sure yet. I won't be putting much music on it since I'll always have my 4S with me.

    Bought a 32gb 4G and after installing my content which is basically a reasonable amount of apps/games, some video podcasts and NO music (all my music is on my 64gb 4S) I had about 10gb left -- which IMO does not allow enough space moving forward, so I took it back to Apple and got a 64gb.

    16GB. I don't store anything on the iPad itself anymore since I almost always have data connection. I have an iPod Classic or my Galaxy Nexus for music. And I stream most of my movies if only for the hassle of downloading huge files onto the iPad. So the 16GB is perfect for me!

    Someone posted = What wallet can handle, but I got the 32GB and did not see the need to spend another $100 as my old iPad was 16GB and was not full. I don't play games or movies on my iPad, so I could not see buying room I won't use.

    With the cloud now I just got a 16gb. I still don't have many games with my iPhone and still have like 7.0 gig left.

    It really depends on what your budget can handle although if you have money to spare of a 64gb then i say that you shoudl go for it snce a lot of new appps out nowadays requires a lot of space

    Also if you are fond of videos and musics it i recommended that you get a bigger memory capaciy to lessen the hassle although you can opt to get 32gb if you have a pretty good access at memory storage sites.getting a 16gb would be too small memory if you plan on watching movies and listening to music using your iPad

    My iPad 2 is 16gb. I went for the 64 + 4g this time around.

    I have seen the app sizes jump quite a bit with the updates. I had about 5 gigs left on my iPad 2, but that was with zero media. I wanted to be able to support the bigger apps, load up some movies, and support additional use - I'm going cold turkey on paper, so I'll have a lot of notes and probably recordings to store in the future, and a lot of those notes will be PDF annotations, so I expect my usage to increase quite a bit. I don't know how much, so I figured $100 was worth the extra security space-wise.

    16gb wifi white. I'm 14 so I don't have an abundance of money! But 16gb is good for me. My iPhone 4 is 16gb also so if I need to I can use the cloud or my MacBook.

    64GB. My apps alone take up more than 16GB so that was not an option. I also have 55 GB of photos on my LAN and want to keep as many as possible on the iPad. If they sold a 128GB I would probably have bought that.

    I was gifted a 16gb white wifi. I screamed when I came home and saw the box - thankfully nobody else was home!

    It is replacing a 32gb original iPad with over half of the space still available. I have a 32gb 4s with a personal hotspot, so 16gb will be fine.

    Well I had purchased a 16GB one on Sunday and it had some dead pixels in the display. I took it back last night and swapped it out for a 64GB one

    I purchased the 16GB, since i'm not a heavy gamer and dont watch to many movies. Mostly for reading and browsing and some photos editing. If i do need an extra storage, i'll just rely on box app since i got 50GB storage for free

    I got the 32 GB. 16GB for me would definitely be too small.

    I went to Apple store intending to buy 16gb and then reduce the amount of music I synced however they the out of stock so I'm now rocking 32gb - happy this happened in truth.
    Also went for wifi and 3G (in UK so no LTE for me yet) so I've got ultimate portability. Love it

    Originally had the 32GB, but swapped it out the next day for a 64GB. I'm very, very happy I did! It's definitely nice not having to stress about how much space is left on my iPad. I'm now downloading all sorts of apps, just for the hell of it.
