Not seems normal at all ...Mine is all clicky. Pretty loud, if I rub my fingertip on it it sounds like rice crispier. Normal?
Perfection is not available on a consumer grade product, but a working home button is something to expect on a ipad, so let Apple check it.I know it sounds whiny, but when I drop 800 plus on something I expect perfection.
EXACTLY, there is no such thing as perfection in just about ANY product let alone a mass produced, assembly line product. Now the best to hope for is having a device where problems are not so glaring that they annoy the hell out of you.Perfection is not available on a consumer grade product, but a working home button is something to expect on a ipad, so let Apple check it.
I'm sure they will change it.
There is a minimal light bleed also on my Nexus 7, in the upper right corner, but is something notable only with a black screen and >70% of brightness .... I really don't care.EXACTLY, there is no such thing as perfection in just about ANY product let alone a mass produced, assembly line product.

For instance, my Air has minimal lightbleed and it's in the lower left of the screen in portrait mode. Does it bother me? Not really because the my icons and taskbar block it from view and it's only noticeable when the brightness is past 50% and i'm watching a video in portrait mode and there is a black bar above and below the video.
Why didn't I take it back and insist on a perfect product? Because I know it doesn't exist and I could very well be trading in one MINOR annoyance for a bigger problem down the line.
Besides, many who seek perfection usually trade in or sell their devices because they want to upgrade.
Same for me .... I'm using gestures on the iPad and assistive touch on the iPhone.Seriously exchange it. Then go "home button free" by using gestures. I almost never use the home button. For someone like Jobs who eschewed buttons, I always wondered why Apple had the home button.
LMAO, thank you. That's what I figured. Just needed clarification. I wish I could see some people's iPad Airs. I don't seem to have a clacky home button. I just bought mine and I was at the Apple store this morning and even checked it against the iPad 4 and iPad 2. Couldn't see any difference. I would definitely get it replaced but not through a 3rd party store if you can help it. Sometimes 3rd parties tend to have old stock with flaws. Apple has been known to quietly fix issues and roll them out without announcement and most likely the updated ones will be sold from their stores long before they make it to the 3rd party retailers.A rice crispier is like a rice crispy, only made slightly more crispy by spellcheck.
