I love my iPad dont get me wrong, but i am really only using it for basic web browsing when in bed or on the go. Other then that i really dont use it for anything else. I check my email when i am out and maybe lookup a phone number here and there..

I bought the 32gb 3G model from Apple.com and was curious, do i have 14 days from the day it was delivered to refund it?

Also, can i bring it to my local apple store and get a refund?

and is the restock fee 10-15%?

It's 14 days from date of purchase. Refunds for online purchases must be obtained by sending the unit back to Apple.

I waited 2 weeks for it to be delivered and released? Sure its not 14 days from the day of delivery?

You can return it to the store for a refund within 14 days of it shipping, I believe. I returned mine the day after, unopened, and received a full refund in cash (even though I paid with a credit card).

If you opened it, you'll have to pay the restocking fee.

Actually that is correct, I was wrong. It is when the item was received. I looked the policy again, I'll quote it for those who evidently didn't have access to the apple page ;)
For eligible Mac, iPad, iPod, and third-party products, you have up to 14 calendar days from the time you receive your item(s) to initiate a return. Personalized iPods (e.g., engraved or customized in any way) may not be returned for refund or exchange under any circumstances unless such product is Dead on Arrival (see the section below for more detailed information on such Dead on Arrival products). If the item is returnable and you send it back to us unopened in the original box, Apple will offer you a refund based on your original method of payment. You must return the product to the Apple warehouse within 14 calendar days of the issuance of the RMA. All products must be packed in the original, unmarked packaging including any accessories, manuals, documentation, and registration that shipped with the product. Apple will assess a 10% restocking fee on any opened hardware or accessory. If you purchased your order using an Apple Business Lease, Apple may ask you to provide a major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover) so Apple can assess the 10% restocking fee.
