Depends. I have 16gb in both iPhone and iPad. I'm not much on games or music, so both are sufficient. The iPad is about 3/4 full, while the iPhone is only about half full. So, if you are into music (lots of it) and games, get the larger capacities. Oh, I have 1,000 or so photos on each too, plus several photo editing apps. Did I make the decision clear as mud or what?

Thanks, Ed. You did!

I'm thinking that with more space, you would feel less constrained about dumping a lot of mp3 and video files on the thing. Am I right?

I bought the 64 meg iPad but I have a lot of synthesizer programs on it, and regularly run out of space.

Yeah, I would say so. 16gb is pretty good size and stores a lot, but of course 32gb...well, you should feel any constraint.

Which programs?

How do you deal with the space constraints?

Once you start talking about spending 600, 700, 800 dollars, what is an extra $100 for 32 -> 64? It hurts, I know, but so does having to worry about space?

Good point! So...you gonna get the 64mb? If you did and found it to be too much space, I would gladly take it off your hands. Just kidding, of course. You know, I used to think 2 - 256gb external HD's were enough for storage of my images and backups....now I have 8 of them and 2 1tb's. Go for the gusto!

Well, if we prioritize our buying decisions based upon what we use the most, then I'm afraid the iPad has to command a top position. I use it more and more. I'm thinking of upgrading to the latest model, which is considerably faster, and if I do, I suppose I may as well go for 64.

Mostly Korg stuff, but anything really that makes noise...I also have the Fairlight app as I was always dreaming of owning one of those.

I also have some Korg hardware synths as well as Moog, Nord, Venom, etc.

As for space, after the holidays I may pick up an iPad4, as well as a second iPad2 and then only install certain programs on each device...each one will have its own MIDI interface; if only the midi interface also had connection for power, it's silly to have to doing music using battery.
