    ASUS TF300 16 GB vs 32 GB version - memory capabilities

    Hi,

    I see the ASUS TF300 16GB tablet can be had at Sam's Club for $278.00 - a big savings over the 32GB model.

    My question is: what advantages, if any, would there be to purchase the 32 GB version (internal memory) for $100 more when I can add, say, a 16 GB external memory card for a few dollars to the 16GB version and thus have 32GB total memory?

    Are there limitations to what can be stored on the external memory card, or does the addition of the 16GB memory card to the 16GB version make the 16GB and 32GB versions equal in memory storage capability?

    Thanks.

    You can not install apps on the external memory card (generally).

    That's it.

    There is also the fact that for novice users, having some media stored on the internal memory and some stored on the external memory card (micro-SD or in the keyboard dock) makes file management a little more cumbersome.

    If one takes their time with it, it shouldn't be a big issue.

    But imagine having some pictures on the internal memory, some on the microSD card inserted into the tablet and some on the SD card on the keyboard dock and trying to keep up with which pictures are on which storage device? I realize that the tablet will scan the available memory cards and add them to the gallery, but what about documents and other content that one might want to use on the tablet?

    Sorry for the long-windedness.

    LWillmann, how do you keep track of your files? Do you label it? I've never used Android OS and my tablet is arriving tomorrow!

    Media files are by far the greediest of memory, and if you store most of these on a card or cards, 16 GB internal is more than ample. I like playing around with apps and have dozens installed, and right now only 6 GB is in use.
