My main goal for (potentially) buying an ipad would be to read and markup pdf files (and web pages in pdf form). I currently have these stored on my desktop (imac), laptop (pc), and Dropbox.


Do I have to be sure that my iPad has enough storage space for my entire Dropbox collection? Or is there a way to edit files locally on the iPad, restore them to the cloud, and keep them off the iPad long-term? (On my laptop and desktop, all Dropbox files are stored locally.)


I don't need to have ALL my work files on my iPad, but I'd like to have access to them for editing. I worry about running out of space quickly (given other stuff I'll have on there, such as music).
