If you want to have music and movies on hand, you'll need more than 16. If your primary use is netflix, internet, and reading with the occasional game 16 GB will do you. The wife has an IPad and gets by with plenty of extra space on the 16 gb. Her main use is internet, facebook, and reading. Those eBooks take virtually no space and she has a ton of them.
If you have only a small selection of music, about 50 photos, no videos, some utility apps, no games, then what the hell is using all your memory? :scratchhead:

I am actually surprised it totaled out to that many songs and apps, because it does feel like a small selection. I recently removed a few hundred photos, good amount of music and several apps to make space for the OS update, which explains the free space. With home sharing and iCloud one could remove a lot of music depending on how you are using the device.
