Wondering if I should spend the extra 70 bucks to get the 32GB version or will 16GB be enough. I know we have the cloud but just curious what people think.

You'll get differing opinions, but a general consensus is that if you are able to afford it, it is better to go for the more memory. You may think less memory will be enough, but later on you may wish you had gotten more memory. You may regret having too little memory, but you'll never regret having extra memory. Hope this helps. :)

Remember, you can't add memory later and I've never heard of anyone complain that they have to much memory.

So in short, if you have to ask, then yes, get the most you can afford.

I agree with Zorkel and Ed...especially if you never had a tablet before. You may not realize, yet, just all you can do (and store) on your device until after you have it in your hands :)

Won't the cloud help with storage or can you only store on the cloud if the content is purchased from Amazon?

The cloud stores all your Amazon-purchased content, but you can only access it with Wi-Fi. So if you're always around Wi-Fi, then 16GB MAY be good enough, but if you are only occasionaly around Wi-Fi then 32GB is the way to go. The Amazon cloud doesn't store non-Amazon bought content, and the 32GB is probably the best way to go.

It's a question or how much of what sorts of content you want to be able to access when you don't have access to the Internet. If it's movies -- say enough for a two-week vacation without connectivity -- then even 32GB will be tight; figure on a GB per hour of stored video. If it's books, you'd be hard pressed to read 32GB of books in a lifetime. If it's music, 16GB will play for a couple of weeks without repeating a song; two weeks worth of 2-hour playlists won't be more than a couple of GB.

But I agree with the principle expressed above. You can't have too much storage; if you can't add it later, it's smart to buy it up front. (I have a 64GB iPad 2 and a 32GB iPod Touch; They are both always full.)

I had a KF 1 with 8 and ran out of room fast. I just bought the 32 this Christmas. If you can afford it, get the 32.

I would just liketo know how much it costs per song on the cloud once past the 250 import limit, or should I simply get the 64GB and store them all on the device itself?
