Depends on the budget tbh. I would get the wifi version only as I have a phone for 3G and the size would depend on how much money I have.

Dont really have a set budget, but what would you say is better? With 3G, or without?

I never really use 3G so I wouldn't benefit from buying the 3G version. So for me the wifi only version would be better. It depends on an individuals requirements.

None If I had to it would be the 32gb wifi + 3g. It all depends on your needs and budget and like yassar mentioned if you already have a 3g device then it kind of cancels out the need of having a 3g version.

I have a 32gb wifi. The only reason I would want the 3G one is because of built in gps, so it would work as an awesome gps device for my car! Apart from that I wouldn't need it for the extra £100 it costs. Also I'm happy with 32, less and with all my music and big apps on there it can fill quite quickly. More and I feel that you would just be filling it for the sake of it

Thanks for the input everyone So if I was going to be mobile with the Ipad, 3G would be the way to go?

Basically yeah if you're going to be using the features that require 3G.

I'll be going with the 16GB WIFI version myself. I do not put music on my iPad, if I do want to use it to play music at home I stream it using home sharing in iTunes. When I'm out I have my 4S for music. 3G would be nice in some instances, but not worth it for me as there are so many places to use free Wifi now. My 16GB iPad 1 isn't even half full.

I have a 64Gb 4S, I bought 64GB thinking there wouldn't be enough space, there is still quite a bit of space, but I haven't stuck all of my music onto there yet. So for an Ipad, 32gb with only wifi would be the best option?
