    If something does happen to be wrong with a mass of iPads, are we SOL or does Apple fix these problems? I am seeing alot of posts about people worrying about "problems" the iPad might have. If Apple can fix them, then whats the big deal? you get a fresh iPad! If Not then WTF!!!!

    why would u be "SOL" if there is a defect? there is a warranty. now, as far as OS issues go, that's a whole 'nuther story...OS "quirks" will be something you live with either until an update, or "forever", depending on the issue. MY ADVICE: NEVER BUY on the "promise". buy on what something can do on DAY ONE. Look how long it took for cut & paste to hit the iphone--2 YEARS.

    Well, Apple is pretty good about exchanging defective products, but trekking back to the store for an exchange is no fun. People who don't live within walking / driving distance of an Apple store would have even more miserable a time, mailing back their iPads and waiting for replacements.

    That may not necessarily be the case. It's been a while since I had to do this. But last time around (with a MacBook), I called customer support, they verified that the computer was under warranty, and the next day a courier came to pick it up. It took one day to repair, so there was about a 48-hour turnaround before the courier came back with the computer. And I never had to leave the house.

    All things considered, not a heartbreaking ordeal.

    The post is coming from inside the house!
    Then why in the world begin a new thread about it? If it's being discussed elsewhere and it's not even a concern you have?

    Apple has a warranty on their hardware
    That should be all the information anyone needs on the subject
    Anything else is just fear mongering concerning an alpha product

    If you live close enough to an Apple Store, you bring it there. Otherwise Apple will have you mail it to them. With a device like the iPad they will probably just replace the whole thing rather than trying to fix anything like they might with a desktop or laptop.
