    So yesterday my uncle gives me a brand new iPad in the black apple iPad case. He goes "here I found this thing" LOL!!

    He didn't even know what it was and how badly I wanted one :)

    Cross your mind to attempt to get it back to its owner?

    hmm... does he mean he literally found it, like at starbucks sitting on the counter, or did he know you wanted one and is trying to trick you

    His Uncle was joking obviously. No one shells out that amount of dough and not know a little about it. He must have known his nephew would be thrilled. Many would!

    If he did indeed find it, and not purchase it, I hope you lose it as well and never get it back.

    He didn't give me a box or receipt but the iPad was like brand new never used before and the charger was all wraped up. It's kinda disrespectful asking him 20 questions about it so I just said thank you uncle :)

    Well if thats the case it's probably legitimate, I don't hope it breaks or gets lost.

    There's a pretty simple way to figure out what's what without giving your uncle the third degree. Simply mention to him that you'd like to have the box the iPad came in, because of your love for all things Apple (including their packaging). If he can't produce the box, then something might be fishy.

    Eff that!

    Enjoy your iPad. If someone lost it then that's their problem.

    The OP's uncle sounds like a swell guy. Stop with the jealousy and let the kid be.

    You guys really think his uncle found a brand new iPad AND case on the floor somewhere?

    Come on. Lighten up. The dude's joking.

    ^ You're absolutely right.

    If it belonged to someone else it would be obvious because it would be filled with tell-tale data.

    seriously, enjoy your iPad and, in the absence of evidence of wrongdoing, don't speculate. Gifts traditionally come with no evidence of being bought, and there are plenty of reasons to explain why he wouldn't have the box, including simply wanting to hand it to you in the case, all ready to go.
