I just purchased a 128gb iPad today. The rumors say that the iPad 5 will have almost no bezel around the screen like the mini iPad. I can't stand that on the iPad mini so I wanted to get a iPad before they change it.

My iPad mini has plenty bezel around the screen

besides the smaller/no bezel, what will the iPad 5 have over the current one? I want to buy one soon, but maybe I'll wait if it'll be significantly better...

For one thing, it is rumoured that the iPad 5 will be lighter and may sport a more powerful processor. But all this is speculation pending a firm announcement from Apple.

Once you return it to RadioShack they return it to the supplier for a credit on it. You can't buy it again. We have a 30 day return policy on almost everything except cell phones but that's because the carriers do not have a 30 day policy anymore.

I've only returned one item to Apple ever - an Apple TV that I decided to replace after a few days with a Mac Mini.

(And I've since bought two more Apple TVs for other uses)

I was traveling with my AppleTV last year, but didn't take my remote because I planned to use my iphone Remote app to cover it. Well, I didn't realize you had to have the actual Apple remote to initiate it again after being unplugged a while, so I was screwed.

I hated to spend $20 for something I would need for all of 30 seconds, so I went to the Apple store and asked if they'd have pity and let me buy a remote, and return it within about an hour. I even offered to "buy" one of their used display remotes, so I wouldn't mess up a new one. They said, "No problem" just buy a new one and return it when you're done. They were very agreeable and didn't have to help me at all, so I was very grateful.

There is a difference between waiting because the new iPad is a month or so away and waiting because the new iPad is a year away.

Well the new rumored Mini was a month away in April, May, June, July, etc etc.

Now it will be almost a year.

Any advice is good. Thanks
See your doctor and get checked out for ADHD. If you abuse customer service long enough it'll get taken away from legitimate users.

No it won't... they'll just tell him no. Not that complicated.

If you want to "rent" something - do it from Walmart. They don't get your name or anything when you return. If everything is there and in tact they can't and won't have a reason to deny you. Everyone could "rent" things if they wanted - but after a while it just doesn't make sense, which is why it isn't really a problem to retailers.
