    I received a 32GB iPad 2 for Christmas and just recently read up on backlight bleeding. I did the notorious experiment for my iPad and found that it has a noticeable yellow line of bleeding on the left hand side. I don't watch much video at night on my iPad, therefore it took me this long to notice it.

    As my iPad is still on warranty, I would like to bring it in. If Apple decides to replace this iPad, will they fix it? Will they give me a replacement unit of 32GB? Will they give me a refurbished unit? Or, dare I say it, will they give me a New iPad as they are no longer selling 32GB iPad 2 models?

    I want to have this defect fixed, however I am not wild about having an iPad with 16GB, in which case I would just keep my current iPad with the screen bleeding.

    Thanks in advance!

    You would get a refurb no doubt. Even if they made them still you would get a refurb.

    You will probably end up getting a 32GB refurbished unit unless they still have some brown boxed replacements left.

    Although I am grateful for warranty policies, I can't help but feel a little letdown with the fact that I received a brand new unit as a gift and end up with a refurbished unit. I understand that refurbished units are essentially brand new units, but it has still been in someone else's hands before mine.

    Ah well. Life isn't always fair.

    I don't understand. I received this one from the Apple Store here in Winnipeg. Are you trying to say I should sell my current model with the defect and buy a new model?

    Refurb from Apple is better than new I have 0 problem with it as they replace the entire outside and check the inside way better than they do new.

    You've had it for nearly 3 months... and you didn't notice anything wrong until you read complaints about it then. You really expect them to hand you a brand new box? Theres a standard return window you know.

    iPad refurbs have brand new batteries and outer cases. You are still ending up with a better device then had you gotten a perfect one and kept it. Theres no reason to complain at all.

    I'm not complaining at all. Disappointing that you haven't noticed that. I have tried hard to show that I am not disgruntled. Just slightly letdown.

    Refurbs actually go through a more rigorous Inspection process.
