Good news first. The tablet is really great. It is noticeably faster. Really light and thin. It is what I thought it would be. So I walk in and the first thing I check was that distortion thing on the screen. It wasn't an issue on that iPad there, so I asked for a black one. They didn't have. So I decided to check at a non Apple store. While she went to the back to check, I checked their iPad and the screen issue was terrible. Just holding it with one hand caused the screen to warp, like you are pushing an lcd screen from the front. Huge black blob. I started to get scared. So I ran back to the Apple Store. I said fine. Get me a silver one. I got it out of the box and this one was also fine, just like the one on display. I really have to want it to make it happen for me to notice it. But you can do that with the Xperia tablet and the Air 1 in fact. So if you're out looking for an iPad you have to go in person. Don't order online. It is basically like a laptop but better, with the apps I have. Some are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Photoshop, Pixelmator, iDraw also an app called AnyFont that allows me to install any font I want and then they're available in all my apps. I'm really happy and this will serve as a laptop replacement no problem. Oh yes, the sound vibration is a non-issue. This thing is loud as hell. Also the screen is perfect. I did a screen test before I took the receipt. The only thing I had to test at home was looking at it inside a dark room for light bleed. It had 0 light bleed. If it has any I can't see it. If anyone has any questions, post it.
