It has been FOUR YEARS since I've posted on MR, nice to be back! I am going to buy a new iPad today and it will be used heavily for data collection outside. It will get a lot of wear and tear. I can safely assume it will be dropped, cracked, broken, in the next two years. I am curious who has the best extended warranty? BestBuy, Apple, Walmart, probably even Target all off some extended warranty where they will replace for "any" reason. Any negative experiences with these warranties? Any recommendations or words of caution? Thanks!
