Hey guys. Quick two important questions here. I'm looking to buy the Nexus 7 pretty soon, on a tight budget. I'm looking to get the 16GB but I'm wondering whether to wait a while to get the 32GB version. Basically, the main things I'm going to be using my Nexus 7 for is apps and movies sometimes. I might not even always use 720p for my movies and shows so I doubt it will become a big problem with space and I always delete it after I'm done watching it. The other main use of it will be apps, and a lot of games like both the GTAs, Nova 3, Dead Trigger etc. No music since that will all be on my phone, so those are the two main things really. Would 14GB of space be enough? (14GB because of how much the system roughly takes up.)

Second question, can I transfer apps that I get from Google Play or the Android Store onto my Nexus 7 via my PC? Like with my iPhone (And no, I'm not an apple fanboy), I can download all the apps and sync them. The problem is that I don't have WiFi yet and I'll be getting it a while after I get my Nexus. Thanks in advance to anyone who answers.

Well, you can attach a flash drive to your nexus. You'd need to get an otg cable if you don't have one. Costs a few dollars on eBay. You could load the flash drives with your movies.

For the second question, I don't believe you can download to your computer. Not sure about that. What you can do is use your computer's wifi as a hotspot.
