ipad 4: 16GB or 32GB or more? Can you download and store Amazon Instant Videos on it?

Does anyone have ipad 4 memory recommendations?

Can movies or tv shows be transferred (stored) to it so they can be viewed on the ipad at a another time without Wi-Fi or Wireless Cell phone internet? Only through iTunes or Amazon video library?

1. 64GB, I needed that much space.

If you sync with all your photos and a few movies, 32 is gone pretty quickly.

Especially as content becomes more and more available, I didn't want to have to dump stuff every few months like I had to before.

I don't know how about saving Amazon movies, but somebody probably does!

6. Just bought the 64GB ipad 4!

Thanks for the advice NYC_SKIP!

Rediculous price gouging for extra memory though... $200 more than the 16GB one.

WOW, somebody bought me a Valentine heart! Thanks to whoever did that!

10. Congrats!

And I agree, it's a bit of price gouging for sure!

But I'm old and drive an old Prius, I figured I could splurge a little!

2. Both my iPad and iPhone have 64 GB

The phone is nearly full with my music (I have hundreds of CDs transferred onto it--13 days worth of music, according to iTunes), and the iPad is nearly full with TV shows that I've bought through iTunes, plus my collection of photographs and eBooks.

According to Amazon, you can buy movies and download them to an iPad, but I must warn you that movies are large files. Each episode of a TV show is about 500 MB, so each movie is a GB or more.

I hear they're coming out with a 128GB ipad. That may be next on my shopping list.

7. Hi Lydia!

Luckily the local Best Buy didn't have the 128GB one in stock, else I may be out ANOTHER $100! I had thoughts of maybe getting that one, but have to stop at somewhere I guess. Same with another $130 for cellular.

I'm new to the iTunes stuff, but it'll be fun!

My music collection would easily surpass even the 128GB version. I wonder if a small SSD will be available to use with it someday?

Thanks for the advice!

3. I have an ip1 with 16. Not enough! Same with my iphone 4s. Already full.

And I don't do much. DU, email, photos and some apps that I mostly don't use.

4. Amazon lets you download purchased and rented movies and TV only.

Not the 'Instant Videos' that are included with a Prime membership.

11. I always buy the most memory I can afford

You never can have enough IMHO.

I am jealous though. My company supplies,us with and iPad but it's an original. The new display is amazing. I guess I shouldn't complain.
