Check out this story from 9to5 Mac! It centres around the sorry tale of a man from Atlanta, Georgia, who bought what he thought was a genuine iPad at his local Walmart store, only to find when he unboxed it at home that it was a fake iPad, possibly some sort of display prop. The outer casing is exactly the same as that of a real iPad, but the innards consist of nothing more substantial than a fake display with a photograph of the home screen.
Naturally the man went straight back to Walmart to get a refund, but the store has refused to give him one. The expert interviewed in the local news report, as per the above video, reckons that maybe someone bought a real iPad, took it home, then swapped it with the dummy version and returned it for a refund, keeping the real iPad. Walmart says that the whole situation is Appleâ€™s fault, as they deal with exchanges when Walmart sells their products. The customer in question is now saying that he will sue Walmart if they donâ€™t refund him his money.
