Talking Help me decide an engraving

I know that it'll lower the re-sale cost, but I've decided I probably won't sell it. So here are the 3 possibilities for an engraving on my ipad 2:
I'm currently leaning to the last one:

You should get it engraved with this..

"I just killed my resale value"

Even though I hate the engraving option as like you said, it lowers the resale value of the item, my vote is for #1.

But I'm sure you'll be regretting that decision when iPad 3 comes out. And your trying to list it in CL or eBay and wonder why no one wants it.

Ladies don't care what your iPad says

I'd lose the dots. Makes it look cheap. Also I wouldn't put the english version on there and just a longer latin saying... like this:



Not saying you should put this on it, but I think something like this looks better

Do you guys come here once a year or something?

I'd engrave, "Help me decide an engraving."

Bad thread indeed. But a thread on what people have engraved on their iPad/iPod/iPhones would be interesting.

Here's my next engraving:

"This space intentionally left blank." I'll certainly have to search for a Zork app to complete the device.

My last two have been the same Shawshank Redemption quote: "Salvation lies within."

IDK...maybe if you actually came up with a profound saying, I could see it...maybe.

But regurgitating cliches AND including Latin/English translation?

You're reaching bro....

Plus most covers will just hide your "worldly" engraving.
