    Those of you who got your iPads engraved, what did you put on them? My boyfriend ordered mine; it says, M_____s Precious. That's also what I call my iPhone. :D

    Although engraving is a nice touch to personalizing the device. I never engrave any of my iDevices. For one I always end up covering the back with protective covering. The other reason being whenever a new device comes out my old one gets sold on Craigslist. Unless by change someone with my same first name wants to buy it, chances are they dont want my name on their new iPad. It depreciates the price. So as much as I want to engrave, I never do.

    I have engraved some of my iPods in the past. However, no more, especially for a device as expensive as the iPad. Think resale value tanking.

    I'm having "Because I can ..." engraved on my iPad. Why? Well, because I can!

    I agree with the devalue comment, and wouldn't have done it for myself for that reason. I also agree with the covering it up with a case comment, which is also another reason I wouldn't engrave. But, he loves me and wanted my first iPad to be special. I'll deal with the resale aspect down the road.

    I like "Because I can". If I were to choose my own, I might've gone with "Finally!"

    That't not a bad engravement because it doesn't only apply to you like a name. I should have thought of something along those lines..lol

    One thing people should remember about engraving. If your iPad acts up and you take it to an Apple store, they usually will just give you a replacement because it takes time to get the repairs done. Apple has the most reliable devices on the market, but they are still devices with a lot of components. If it is engraved, they will send it in, and you will have to wait for the repairs.

    Preordered mine, and it will say Joonbugg's Ipad. Just my nickname since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

    One thing about getting a iPad engraved makes it a bit harder to sell if that option ever comes into play.

    Engraving is a groovy idea though.

    It would be nice if apple (or other manufactures) offered embossed covers.

    I've engraved:

    "To what do I owe the extreme
    Pleasure of this surprising visit?"

    That's a quote from clockwork orange. :p

    I have and love my ipad2 so I really didn't need the upgrade but... My husband who does not usually care about technology was thrilled when he found out about the new iPad release. When I asked him why he rubbed his hands together, grinned broadly and said, "cause now I'm getting an ipad2!" he thought I would get the new one and pass mine down to him. So, my new iPad 3rd generation says "I Love My Husband!"

    My mom past away in Jan this year, and she had left a little money that was divided up between the sons, so with some of that money I upgraded from the iPad 1 and had engraved:
