What does your iPad engraving say?

I am thinking about getting the engraving, but not totally sure what one gets engraved on an iPad. Curious what's on yours?

I stopped having mine engraved after my 1st and 2nd gens Touches went bad and were replaced with bare-backed Touches.

I did have something engraved on the iPad2 I bought for my wife: "Dr's Eye-Pad". She's an eye doctor.

Here is an idea for you.

"Didn't know what to say but it was free and I even lowered my resale value by 25% too"

LOL funny, I just mentioned that to DH, too. What if I want to sell it? I don't think I'll be getting any engraving. I can always count on MacRumors to reinforce my positive thinking.

I must be waaaaay out of the loop because I did not know about engraving and I did not know it was free. Is this an option when you order it directly from Apple or something?

I bought mine from Best Buy for 2 reasons. 1. There is not an Apple store within 50 miles. 2. Best Buy has an accident protection plan meaning if I break it within 2 years they will fix it or replace it, which I love.

I had a friend whose iPad said "iBelong to You"
It's kinda neat since he can still sell it away without having his name on it

I went with a classic movie quote as you can always find someone who appreciates the classics when I go to resell. My iPad2 reads "Louie, this looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship". If anyone is not a movie fan its the last line of Casablanca.

In retrospect I think it could have been amusing to write, "Owner used this iPad in the bathroom daily." but I can only imagine what that would have done to the resale value, not to mention what my classmates migh thing.

HA HA this is a good one. Imagine you sell it without letting the person know it's engraved... The look on their face when they receive it and take it out of the box would be priceless.
