Hey folks, I just wanted your opinion on this. My brother bought an iPad 4 for college about a month ago and its been working great, until a few days ago. On the iPad screen, there is a solid purple line running across the screen, and its permanantly there so its not app-related. I have tried restoring as new to no avail. So I called Apple to see what they can do. They said I could take the iPad in to an Apple store and have them replace it for a refurb. one and I said fine thats no problem. Now, I usually don't have a problem with this sort of stuff but my brother is very picky (or shall I saw OCD) when it comes to this sort of stuff. He's arguing that since he bought a new iPad 1 month ago, they should replace it with a new one, not a refurb. one. I tried explaining it to him that the refurb. iPad will be good as new but with a few old parts and he things it will break down faster than a new one. Any opinions? How are Apple refurb. products? It is disappointing that a new iPad failed after 1 month of normal use (no water damage)..plus I'm going to have to spend like $30 on gas to drive to my nearest Apple store since we live out near the country side.
