    With the new Ipad 3 release and HD performance + 5 MB camera what memory size would you get, on the ipad 2 a lot of discussion amongst my friends has been you don't need the 64Gb

    thoughts on what memory size you would buy and why and what you would store on the device, since most can be streamed anyway

    the pricepoint of £399 or the extra £80 for 32 and another 80 for 64

    It depends on what for and how you intend to use the iPad. If you've never taken pictures with a 10" digital camera, you might want to go to an Apple store and try it to get a feel for what it's like. It's not likely going to be your primary camera. If you do take pictures with it, will you permanently store them on the iPad? Or will you move them to your computer or photo sharing sites? Apps and content downloaded from iTunes are more likely to consume space than pictures.

    In my opinion, very few people need more than 16GB, and the additional space probably isn't worth the cost.

    Everything is done through iTunes. I've never created content on my iPad, so I have no idea. I assume it would be the same as the iPhone.

    Thanks

    if you dont create content how do you use - everything streaming ?

    i'm assuming subscribing to newspapers / magazines these are downloaded onto the ipad also music and any podcast

    If via itunes then i can make up playlists and sync with itunes and change the playlist depending on where i may be going and for how long -

    mmmmmm

    The iPad is primarily a content consumption device. I use various apps to read web content, and I load some content from my iTunes library and delete it when I don't want it on there any longer.

    If you intend to store a large iTunes library and a lot of pictures on your iPad, then get one with sufficient storage for your needs.
