    The decision is left to be made. Should I purchase an iPad or not?
    I am a soon to be college student and am looking for a tablet-like device with several different functions. I am looking for a device that could possibly be used to read textbooks along with other reading material. It would also be nice to have a device that is portable and easy to take notes on. I would also love this device for all of its entertainment purposes.
    So should I get an iPad or not?
    And if I do should I get the 32GB WiFi iPad for $600 or the 16GB 3G iPad for $629?

    Well I will be in college soon where I assume there would be available WiFi and at my house I have a WiFi connection. I can't think about that many times I would need the connection except for odd car trips. I just do not want to make the wrong decision and not be able to change it.

    For College, I'd go with the Wifi only model. An iPad is a good device for College life. You can have all your books, take notes, all that good stuff you need!

    Yeah, there's more than likely going to be wifi, so just get the wifi version. It will save you more money for other supplies.

    So its worth the extra capacity? Do you think 32gb is necessary? Or do you recommend the 16gb?

    i think the 16 gb is plenty for college. its enough for a fair amount of music and apps.

    16GB is totally enough. I have a 16GB and with all my songs etc still have 13 gb left.

    Hmmm...well this is a tough decision then. The main reason I was aiming for the 32gb was because I currently have a 8gb iPod touch and I am always struggling with that being full of apps and music.
