My iPad came in today and I noticed a small section of the back had black spots. It looks like some kind if coating/paint wasn't sprayed on properly. It's not a huge issue but it is noticable if you look at it. Kinda bummed. Anyone else have this issue? Would Apple warrant an exchange for this or am I making a big deal out of nothing?

Is it perfect otherwise? Because if it is, personally I would keep it.

It happens. Maybe you get a Macbook and on closer inspection at home you find a tiny scratch or a black spot on the paint.

But if the device is working 100%, then it's a keeper. It will eventually get dirty and scratched from use. You'll never see that anyway.

If it really really bothers you then, go to the store yourself. When they give you the new one don't leave until you're satisfied.

Google Malaysia dead pixel test. Click on the first hit. Save all the images. Look at them full screen and max brightness. Check for dead pixels and light bleed.

Tether WiFi or use the WiFi at the store. Test the speed.

Etc etc. Camera microphones. Use it for a while.
