    Yes, that would be horrific for me too, I keep mine in it's apple cover all the time and the only time I take it out is to give it a good clean but only on my nice soft bed where there is no risk of dropping it.

    This is a thread from last year.

    But definitely a horror story!

    I've noticed this a few times recently - i.e. people giving a response to a thread whose last post was sometimes a year ago. I don't use iPF; does that show the date of the post that you're responding to?

    Yip, it sure does but it isn't always that obvious - it's less conspicuous than the web version.

    When I got mine, I opened the box peeled off the plastic coat wrap and applied a screen cover and put it in a case before it was ever plugged in. Mine never are taken out and travel in an extra padding reinforced waterproof carrying case. And no one touches my iPad unless I say okay.

    Dent in the aluminum and one single crack down the middle of the screen. Tears later, I call Apple to see what can be done, and for the low low price of $299 plus tax they can replace the screen, and that doesn't include the dented aluminum.. Why do they charge $300 plus when online I can find people that replace it, screen included, for $129.

    I can still use it, but I'm absolutely heartbroken, and why does Apple feel the need to completely rip you off on a screen replacement?

    This could easily qualify as the worst day of the year for me. My parents told me it was my fault for taking it out of the case, but I haven't so much as even got a scuff on it when using it outside of the case. Blah

    I wonder how you guys got your free new iPad cuz what the Apple store jerk told me was that I needed to pay 250$ + taxes to get a replacement. I got my iPad 3 weeks ago and it's cracked and I know I never dropped it. I'm sure here was a build problem wit mine. Also the apple store employee's attitude was very unpleasant.
    I even heard another employee tell a customer that he had hearing problem.

    I'm very disappointed with Apple. I'm now canceling my MobileMe account as well and I'll never buy another apple product ever again.

    Have you tried speaking to another member of staff or the store manager? Or even another store? Provided that the alternate store is fairly local of course.

    As I find that in general, the apple staff are really friendly
