    Thumbs down A word of warning

    Attention all iPad users. I hate to start my first thread on such a negative note but unfortunately I was one of those people who bought their iPad two weeks before the iPad 2 was announced and the price of iPads fell by over 100. Needless to say I was a little miffed. However I heard that apple and some other big stores where giving refunds to those who like my self had just bought an iPad. Unfortunately my nearest Apple store is 100 miles away so I purchased mine at a near by PC World and guess what folks PC World are not providing refunds to those who just bought an iPad. Don't get me wrong I love my iPad but the message here folks is NEVER BUY AN APPLE PRODUCT FROM A PC STORE---- ESPECIALLY PC WORLD!!!!!!

    Apple does release upgrades pretty much every year around the same time. Sorry you lost out though. I was going to buy one in Nov and new the second one would be out in the spring so I waited. I'm glad I did.

    Nice to see you came out...

    from underneath the rock you were living under. The IPAD2 has been talked about since October 2010 and the announcement has been talked about since then also.

    Sorry to hear that, I would ask to speak to the manager. I would threaten to return the device for my money back, especially if all stores and apple themselves are honoring the $100 dollar return. Don't give up yet. Keep bugging the store about it or return it. Get "ALL" ur money back, then repurchase for lower price. It hasn't been 2 weeks yet ;-)

    No reason to be rude, please.

    Having said that ~

    The ipad2 was talked about for a long time. I am sorry though, for your frustrations.

    My Mother also bought an iPad from PC World after using mine while staying with us, she bought it instore for 439 and got home and found out it was available on the website for 329 at first they wouldn't refund the difference but she sent a letter via recorded post to the CEO, she wasn't given the 100 refund but was sent 150 in iTunes cards which was an excellent solution for her as she'd probably have spent that much on apps and games anyways.

    So moral of the story, send a letter explaining whats happened, how unhappy you are, how you'll kick up a fuss instore about it, and see what happens.

    I also bought the iPad 1 just before the iPad 2 was released, a week before people were talking about just getting their new ones on these forums. To be honest I feel I've no one to blame but myself for the loss I made through not doing enough research beforehand. I could have bought one with 3G for the saving I would have made. Stores could have been a little more honest about selling the old ones, but they're not obligated to do so.

    If Iq have an older one as opposed to the newer then that's down to my mistake.

    I'm with you on that, I bought my one knowing the iPad 2 was just around the corner so......

    A) I did it in full knowledge that the new one was coming, there was no secret there.......and

    B) I bought it at a price I was happy with.

    I look at it like this, if I go into a supermarket and buy a tin of beans and next week there is a new tin of beans on the shelf and they are selling off the old tins they are not going to give me any money back.........same goes for buying a car, a phone, a TV, anything........sometimes I think Apple are their own worst enemy for giving money back because some people will always feel like they have missed out. They would be better giving nothing back!
