16gb or 32gb?
most uses of my Transformer would not need more than 16gb in my opinion. However, I am thinking of signing on with Netflix and I assume that 32gb would be better than 16gb. Right or wrong?

You need to decide whether its worth it to pay a $100 premium for 16GB more of internal memory vs. just picking up a 16GB micro-SDHC card for between $20-30 bucks for a total of 32GB with the 16GB tab. As an alternative - periodically check out NewEgg as they often put up open box transformers for sale often at a deep discount. I was able to pick up an open box 32GB transformer for less than the retail price of a new 16GB transformer.

I was thinking the same till I found a cheap deal on 3 8Gb micro sd cards,So bought the 16Gb model after installing my stuff, rooted, custom rom, clock at 1.4Ghz, books library, couple of movies, I still have 11Gb free,All my music is on the sd card with a few tv shows,
I agree with vferrari. I bought the 16g and bought a 16g microsd.
is it true that the 32gb has a sim card slot and supports 3G?
No. 3G capability is independent of the internal memory configuration of the tablet. That is up to the service providers. I don't know of a 3G enabled Transformer that has been released (at least not in North America).
After playing with my 16GB unit and searching online I found out that adding a 16GB external micros SD card does NOT increase your available app storage - apps are ONLY stored in the internal SD flash memory: 16GB max for the 16GB model and 32GB for the 32GB model. I have over 80 apps installed add it has hardly touched the 16GB capacity as most apps are 1 to 20 mb in size. The only thing you can put on the external microSD card is docs, pictures and Movies, Backups, etc. I would go with the 16GB for everyday user and 32GB for a gamer. Just my 2 cents...
Isn't there an app2SD application available for tablets? I know on my phone (EVO3D), I can move just about any app off to SD thereby having internal storage and external.
Nook Color (rooted)
Sprint EVO 3D
I had app2sd installed for a while on my Nook and it couldn't move anything I tried to move. Maybe it's better with a phone than it is for a tablet.
