rawdoggie, Place the emphasis on the light bleeding issue and politely state that you are not comfortable with it, and that you would like to purchase a Macbook instead. I believe that there is a high probability that you will get full credit for your iPad and come out of it a happy camper. I see Apple bending over backwards all the time to make their customers happy these days. They are not perfect, but they've got the best show in town. Don't let the two weeks part of it discourage you from asking for what you need, this gets waved all the time. Good Luck!
