I've always been impressed with Apple hardware - it's always very sturdy and looks great. However, now being on my third iPad 1 within a year, I'm starting to wonder if longevity of the device is going to be an issue... My original iPad 1 had a screen blemish that developed (about the size of a pea). Drove me crazy - got a refurb - it had bluetooth radio issues - got another refurb - it too actually has a small blemish on the screen! THis blemish is small enough and right at the edge, so I can live with it (I don't want to have to go back and get yet another refurb - who knows what issues it would have!), but I'm really starting to wonder how the iPad is going to stand up to time now! Anyone else with similar (or contrasting) stories? EDIT: Then a guy I work with has brought me two iPod Touch's - both about a year old - and both were dead! Is Apple hardware starting to go downhill??
