I looking to get a table (either the IPad or the Asus Transformer Primer. I'm thinking of using it mostly for travel and would like to use it for internet connections, email and downloading & watching movies & music. How can I figure out how much storage (16gb, 32gb, or 64gb) I'm going to need?

I determined what size of tablet I got (storage wise) based on two things: 1) Price and 2) Whether or not I could easily expand the storage.
For starters, you are going to get the most bang for your buck from the Prime. The 32GB Prime costs the same as a 16GB iPad. So right there you have twice the storage for the same price.
If you happen to fill up the 32GB of internal storage (which is not that hard since you pan on loading the thing up with movies and music) you can simply get a 32GB micro sd card for 40$ and double your space (this is not even an option with the iPad). Also, you could add even more space via the SD card slot or the USB port on the keyboard dock.
With the iPad, once you fill the thing up, you are done. From that point on you have to manually move music and movies off the device in order to add new stuff. I used to have to do this with my old iPod touch and it was quite a tedious and annoying thing to have to do. Of course I only had 8GB to work with back then.
