So, I bought an Ipad 2 (first apple product by the way) and I have had it for 8 days. I noticed yesterday that there was a dead pixel. I wanted to ignore it but realized it was just going to bug me so I called the Apple store to see what they suggested. He said Wal-Mart (where I bought it) may exchange it but bring it to them first and they may be able to do something for it and save me some trouble. I booked an appointment with the Genius Bar (this is all new to me) and took it in this morning. The rep looked at it and said yes it was a dead pixel and they would replace it under warranty. She went to the back and got another one and I checked it out. It looked but brand new but I asked her if it was refurbished. She said not in a sense that someone had used it and just sent it back. It looked fine so I took it and took it home. I told my fiance and she thought I got screwed since I had only had it 8 days and that they should have given me a new one instead. At first I blew it off but I started thinking she's right as she normally is. I could understand more if I had it for several months or weeks even but it had been just over a week. Is this the normal procedure to get a refurbished one and does anyone know anything about them or had any trouble with them? Did I get screwed? Should I have just gone back to Wal-Mart and exchanged it for a new one?
