    Love the ipad but i am going to return it...

    So i got the ipad thinking it would be a great companion to my desktop.....and it was for 3 weeks. My desktop just crapped so now i am having to look for a replacement because the ipad by itself is just not doable. I dont want another desktop so if i get a laptop i think it is rather redundant to have a laptop and ipad at this point for my specific uses. I am thinking about taking the ipad back and getting a macbook pro 13". I have never owned a mac or even considered owning a mac until i got the ipad but i like the idea of the app store on the mac and the compact size and construction compared to other laptops. Only problem is that i went by the Apple store to look at the Macs and they said that the general rule is 2 weeks on ipad returns. I have had mine 3 weeks. My receipt says nothing about returns or time limits. They said it depends on who i get to help me at the store whether they will oblige. Do you think i will have any problems. They shouldnt be too upset right?.....i am returning a $600 ipad and buying $1,500 macbook.

    Oh yeah...and i asked about Lion since it doesnt come out until July. They said it would be free since i would be buying it so soon to the release date.

    Generally the folks at the MAC store are pretty helpful when I go there, but maybe just state that you need more functionality than the iPad can provide and maybe they will let you bring it back. I didn't know there is any specific time limit but I also would not expect to be able to bring it back three weeks later, unless there was something wrong with it. Good luck, I hope they take it back for you.

    For some reason i had in my head the 30 day limit for returns when you first get a cell phone. I dont know why. 2 weeks just seems very short. Actually i just counted....im on day 25 now

    I think if you are nice to them they may take it back. The apple store where I go is always ridiculously busy. They have always been very nice to my wife and I but we treat them like they are oh so very very smart. I have overheard other people being shut down by snotty, post pubescent "geniuses" because the customer had an "attitude".....ie they were unhappy or upset about something. I'm in my 40's and it is obvious when I go there that I am "old" but if I appeal to their coolness and superior intellect, they do seem to come across. If you cannot tell I really don't like the Mac store model, but it isn't designed to appeal to my generation, even though my generation buys so many of their products.

    Only if you want a exchange . . . ..


    If less the 30days they should take it back but change you a restocking fee of 10%. If if you plan to get a laptop at the same time they might skip the restock fee.

    However i suggest you look at what you really need and . . . . then buy it.

    The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    Try going there when you are in your 70's. They practically hid under their shiny white tables when I entered the store. I was programming and building computers before these "geniuses" were born and they assume anyone over 35 is a computer illiterate. I bit my tongue and bought an Ipad but it's my last Apple product.

    I love the products, but I find the apple store so unprofessional. I have two teenagers of my own, and the last thing I want is to have to deal with smart ass young people who are encouraged by their employer to be, well, smart ass young people. For example, I've spent lots of money there and don't like being referred to as dude or bro by some goofballs after a purchase.

    Totally agree,
    I felt like a second class citizen too.
    We have been running successful businesses well before they were born
    Techo info is not the only form of intelligence.
    I would like some good honest help without the attitude.

    I guess I was lucky. The guy that helped me called me sir each time he spoke to me.
    I do know what you mean. I get in when I go into a Verizon store and at least the Apple folks know their butt from a pair of shoes, unlike the snot nose arrogant folks I have to deal with at Verizon. They act like they are doing me a favor to pay their commission as they try to tell me some crap story about how I need a task killer on my Android phone or my Windows phone won't connect to my computer because I haven't updated the roaming list on my phone in 90 days.
