I am trying to decide if I need to spend the extra $100 to get the 32g tablet. I've looked at the specifications and I'm not very technical so the few differences really mean nothing to me.

I might watch a movie on it or something but I won't be playing games really or anything like that...what do I need to consider when looking at both options?

I've got two movies on my tab, 3000 photos, about 20 Apps, 30 music albums and I have only used 3g of my internal storage and 1.5 of the external.
Personally I struggle to know what takes up most peoples space. So my opinion, 16 is plenty big enough.
Others may beg to differ

Depending on how it's encoded, about 1 hour of DVD video can be about 1 GB. (I had an episode of a TV show running about 600-700 MB, and it was near an hour, but this was encoded for the 7" Tab) Depends how many movies you want to store on the device at once, really. I have the 16GB version, and I've never actually filled it.

All depends on how you use it.

I have the 32Gb and only have about 7Gb remaining right now. Its not movies or music that's taking up the space, it's apps.

Some apps these days can be upwards of 100Mbs off Google Play. So if you don't mind going through your files every once and a while to clear up space, go for the 16Gb.
