    I know I am buying a black iPad Mini, but I'm still torn on GB, usually I get as much as possible, future proofing, but I have a feeling I'll be buying a retina mini in the next twelve months. Any thoughts?

    So for anyone who has done this pre-ordering before, do they normally use three hours to update the digital storefront??
    I don't remember when the store went down when I preordered my 4S but its always at 12PST that the site goes live. Or a couple minutes early as it was then.

    I've never felt like I needed more than 16 gb in an iPad. I have most of my content on my phone and computer. I keep most of my tablet content (comics, books, music, games/apps I'm not currently playing/using etc) in the cloud so it's not actually taking up any space.

    So here's my plan: Pre-order 4G iPad mini and iPad 4 tonight, go line up and buy Wi-Fi iPad Mini and iPad 4 on launch day just to get reviews done faster. Insane enough?

    I'm supposed to order a 16GB White, but after looking at it I think I might just pay the extra for my sister to have a 64GB, I'm not sure that she'll use it, but reading through a lot of the great features maybe she'll find the storage to come in handy for movies...

    I'm not on the road enough to warrant the extra data plan. I just use my iPhone on the road. iPad is for home. So WiFi only. With iCloud, do you really need 64GB?
    I have always gotten the 64gb versions of stuff and I always feel like I need more. I have to keep taking 2 movies off to add more content....gets annoying. This is the first time I ever even consider 32 gb. Ok I just convinced myself...64 gb wifi it is!

    Sounds great. Then once you're done with the reviews you'll have 2 of each, so send one of each to me for some 'real world user' testing and reviews. I promise I'll return them when the next models are released!

    I was going to say I would just get the WiFi and use a hotspot on your phone if it's available to setup because I never use enough data on my own devices to setup the extra access fees per month...

    I don't get how people do this. I guess if you're the type of person who keeps ALL your content on every device then it's possible. I've never been able to fill up a 16gb tablet before. I don't keep music on it, I never store movies on it, hardly ever take pictures or videos with it, don't have many games on it. I guess I'm just not a power tablet user, hence getting the iPad mini instead of a full sized one. My phone on the other hand, gotta have the 32 or 64 gb model because I keep all my music on there plus a TON of games.

    This is a cool forum. I have never waited in lin for i-anything. I just called Apple and they said they have no idea when they can start taking pre-orders.

    so if the store is down now, does that mean we can order in a couple of minutes, or in three hours???

    I think he meant storage capacity.

    I'm the opposite, I've gone through almost 10gb of data this month on the iPad. Probably around 5 on the phone.
