I'm thinking about getting one, but don't think I need the 3g. I'll be using mostly in home, hotel, airports...

Thinking I'll go with the 32g version. Interested in feedback though. Thx.

I don't believe Apple has released that information. Since the wifi-only one was available for longer than the 3G one, I'm going to GUESS that the wifi one has been more popular.

As for capacity, on OTHER products that Apple HAS mentioned capacity, the largest capacity model always tends to be the best seller. Perhaps that is also the case here.

This sounds like 2 separate questions...

1) What is the most popular configuration?

and

2) Which configuration is right for you and we do not have enough information to answer that.

I got the 32gb the day they came out (BTW: stumbled into store late in the day while Easter shopping, didn't wait in line). Very happy with it. I use it 99% at home and the other places I use it have wifi. No need for another data plan as I have enough already! Sounds like a wifi model would work for you. As to the size, it depends on what you want to store on it. Only you have that answer.

We have the wifi 16-gig. I'm glad I stuck with the wifi since I have an iPhone for mobile use. I kind of wish I had gotten the 32-gig though.

Yup!

1) So, why not turn this into a Poll question?

2) 1991-C4 hit the nail on the head. Only the OP can determine what he/she needs/wants. It all depends on things like personal preference, what it will be used for, etc.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

I have the 64G 3G version...I cannot imagine spending the money for the iPad and not going with 3G capability. Most airports charge for wifi, and for traveling by auto the 3G is indispensable. Spend the extra $130...it is only money, but if you don't, at some point you will probably wish you had not gone the cheap route. I love this tool when traveling.

I think it's an interesting question. I'll add a poll, so we can see what it might be.

Do you think it'd be a good idea to include the wi-fi and 3G versions as options too?

16GB wi-fi
16GB wi-fi + 3G
32GB wi-fi
32GB...

You get the idea.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

I got the 32gb wifi...that's way more than enough memory for me. Haven't needed anywhere near more...only using 8-9gb.

I agree with idrinorbarsaku. I bought the 32 GB 3G, but have not yet used 3G.
Seeing how the largest capacity iPhone4 is only 32 GB, I saw no compelling reason to have more capacity in a device that I would probably use less storage for. I am going to run out of room on my iPhone before my iPad, and both will probably be obsolete before I do either.

Bingo. It is a fine travel tool. Maps, Internet, email, word processing, spreadsheets, etc.

Most of places I'll be using will have wifi. Don't want to pay for any other subscription services.

Although I am a fan of 3G I feel compelled to point out that the $130 you spend extra to get the 3G version is just the beginning. You will also need a monthly charge of around $30US, possibly much more if you use it recklessly.

This makes the *total* cost of 3G much more than the extra $130 as indicated above.
