    New to Apple Products. My ipad2 will be delivered next week from Apple. If the screen has a backlight issue, will the warranty still be 12 months with an "engraving" done by Apple?

    Thanks

    Did you have to pay anything extra for the upgrade?

    Yes the additional costs. I wanted to upgrade anyway because of the amount of movies I was putting on it. They didn't have a 16 gb on for me.

    I checked my old iPad 1 for bleeding and it does the same, given that it is not yet a year old, do you think they will replace or more ideally upgrade it ? My iPad 2 bleeds also so I will pursue that one with apple also.

    I noticed a lot of bleeding on mine too, just the other day when I was trying out the Crackle app.

    I have had it almost a year and never noticed it ~ not a problem!

    Have you even tried to speak to the chaps at Apple to see if exchange/upgrade is possible ?

    No, I haven't. I have almost had mine a year and I never noticed it before ~ but I was like: "WTF, I have it!" lol!

    I don't think it will get worse. June is when I bought it so I guess I better think about it.

    As soon as I return to the IK (tomorrow) I will pay the chaps a visit. I live 7 minutes away from an Apple store.
