    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I just read the specs today. It looks like a nice unit. In my opinion, more is better, at least up to the price pain point...

    hello dear experts

    many thx for all the replies - guess youre right.

    btw: if we have in mind that we can use the cloud then the question of memory is a
    somewhat a "virtual" discussion

    do you think i can use the cloud for an - so called "extendet memory"?

    love to hear from you

    Well, there are 2 kinds of memory - one is functional (os + application runtime) and the other is storage. The 16gb vs. 32gb is storage. For most folks, 16gb (about 4 standard DVD's worth) is adequate. If your system has a micro-sd slot, then you can add up to another 32gb (or more if it supports the latest standards) of replaceable memory. So, since a 32gb sdhc card costs about $35, that is a lot less expensive than the price differential between a 16gb and 32gb device. A 16gb card is about $20-30 today...

    FWIW, the prices per GB have been going up lately, mostly due to demand for flash memory chips.

    Just to add to what rubberman is saying. It is impossible for me to pipe my mp3 collection from the cloud when driving on the free way long disance from my tablet to the car stereo.
    No wireless on the freeway and phone wireless can be spotty at best on long Texas desert expanses. Cell towers are far and few between.
    Because the cloud requires a internet connection. Figure that into your choices.
    So my 16gig class 10 micro sd card fills that limitation.
    I watch oldy cartoons from the 1920-1940's also if a passenger.
