    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.

    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.

    They'd likely prefer it not say anything - agreed....you can try TOO hard you know...

    Your percentage just dropped well below 5%.
