Hi

I'm sorry to ask but I have a limited budget and I really want an iPad 2.
Is it worth it to wait 3 months to get a 64GB rather than a 32GB now.
I don't have a lot of music (5 - 10 albums in itunes at a time) and I don't watch too many movies. I do, however, play games... I have an iPod Touch 32GB and I never run out of space but would I run out on an iPad?

Thanks in advance!!!

I think you've answered your own question. You're tight on cash and you note that you don't need anything more than 32GB.

32 is perfect. 16 would be great as well since you don't see, to have an extensive mobile library. Good luck with your decision and keep us posted. Which ever device you decide on, I know you will be happy.

Yeah, 16 would definitely be enough for the use you have described.

A quick look at these two apps in the store will tell you that they are 739mb, and 505mb.

I agree with the others, the 32GB will be enough for you. How much space do you have left on your ipod touch?

Apple is shipping in one week?

As to size, 32 seems right for you.

Google it or search iPad forum for comments.

A few folks have had a problem of one sort or another and Apple immediately made it good.
