    I only used up about 2GB on my 32GB Xoom. I guess it depends on how are going to use you tablet. Plus the transformer actually have a working SD card slot, so to me 16 is a lot.

    For me, 16gb is enough. I always go for the bigger storage spaces on my gadgets and I never fill it. There are so many alternate ways to store things now, that 16gb should be more than enough. I am actively trying to fill my 40gb of space on my Thunderbolt...and Im not even close. I dont really plan on using the Tablet for downloading massive amounts of movies or storing my entire music collection...so 16gb is more than enough.

    I'll be going 16GB here. If I need more storage, I'll just use the microSD.

    16 is enough for me.

    The microsd onboard can offer more space and a full sized sd on the base should make shuffling data pretty easy.

    You can buy a lot of sd memory for $100.

    I'm looking at the 16GB. I had an iPod with a ton of space and never filled it.

    This is what I'm thinking.

    Although, how much memory is on-board to load apps? Does anybody have that figure? Or does it use the onboard 16gb to load apps?

    1 GB RAM
    16 or 32 GB "internal drive"
    32GB MicroSDHC

    and, if docked

    128 GB or more SDXC (unsure of max. capacity spec)

    I currently use ~17GB on my 32GB iPad, and ~12GB on my Evo. The amount of storage I use on the iPad hasn't increased much over time, but storage I use on the Evo's microSD card fluctuates a lot, since I'm always adding and removing music and podcasts.

    Since I'm going to switch to the Nexus S when it hits Sprint, I'm going to buy the 16GB Transformer and give it my Evo's microSD card. If I need more than 16 gigs on the Nexus S, I'll offload the excess to Amazon Music Cloud.

    Why not get the 16GB model for $399, take the $100 dollars you would spend on 16GB more and get a 16GB microSD card for $25? Use the $75 you lave left over toward the keyboard dock?

    Or, you could get the 16GB model for $399 and add a 32GB microSD card for under $60 and a 32GB SD card for under $50. For about $500 you could have 80GB instead of 32GB.

    The best iPad or even current Xoom is only 64GB.

    You can add memory any time. Don't miss the keyboard now. I think once people see it with the keyboard, almost everyone will want it. It is just too cool of an idea.

    16GB is all you're going to need. If you need to upgrade, you can get a MicroSD card for cheap. Also, I'm pretty sure ASUS is offering unlimited cloud storage.
    So many phones, so little time.

    If you were an apple owner you would have to seriously consider what size to get, but this one I am pretty sure 16GB will do just fine, and upgrading the memory to add another 32GB is simple and that should probably be enough for most. Unless you want 32 and then add another 32 later. It's cheaper to add memory later anyway so I'd get the 16GB.

    I am in the same boat, 16 or 32? I sold my XOOM off (too late to return it) and really liked having the 32GB there but honestly I know I would not max the internal out but I always like to prepare. Still with a 32GB microSD card we should be fine.

    I did look over at XDA-Developers and they are fast at work on CWM, rooting etc so hopefully won't be too long.

    I will hit Best Buy tomorrow and check it out, want to see it before I buy it.
