Will the 16gb iPad be large enough?

I have a Wifi external hard drive that I use to back up my music and movies from my primary computer, so I don't anticipate having to use the iPad to hold my entire library. I mostly plan to use it at school to open and review PowerPoints and Word documents and take notes, plus any cool apps or games I happen to find. I would like to put some of my favorite music on it, but not necessarily full length movies. I will most likely not use it for taking large numbers of photos, but may use it to shoot short clips and pics. I will maintain my primary computer for developing documents and power points, but use the iPad to take them with me on the go and do some minor editing. I just don't want to find that I am short on space for fun apps and things that I might want to use while on the go. I am new to Apple products and don't really know about the average app sizes and such.

    I have an iPad 2 16 gb and its storage is full. I recommend the 32 gb.

  • I purchased the new Retina Display iPad last Friday with 16gb and by Saturday night I realized that I needed to upgrade to either the 32 or 64. I ended up getting the 32 today online since they are holding a black friday sale. So to sum it all up DO NOT OPT FOR A 16GB iPad. You will be kicking yourself for sure!

  • This is just a toy. I have to use my IPod to carry my music because the storage is so limited. My 164 GB Ipod is half full just from my I tunes. There is not enough memory to carry even a couple of audio books.
    I do have over 2000 songs and several books on Itunes.
