This is why I like buying the latest version of a device, and I doubt you would have more than 32GB worth of class materials to put on it all at once, do you?
I had a 16 gb iPad and did fill it up and one class carries over material from one to the other, but I might be able to get by with 32gb. I am really not sure here. I doubt I could use the iPad for anything but class. This may have just pushed it over the top. Great discussion here and very thought provoking. I certainly cannot afford a 64gb 4th generation and gaming will be secondary. This is why I looked so hard at Androids. Now, I have heard of Bluetooth hard drives for iPads but how well they work is the question, and I do not want to buy drop box space. If Apple ever releases a SD slot Android might be in trouble. However, if not for Android, a 3rd generation 64gb iPad would have been way too expensive for me. The price dropped 150.00 this month because of the Android Tablets like the Nexus.
FYI a 3rd generation 32gb is 459.99 http://www.microcenter.com/product/3...GB_Wi-Fi_White
