A warning to potential iPad buyers everywhere (but especially in Asia): First, if you live in a country where the iPad has not been officially launched yet, do NOT go out of your way to purchase an iPad from another country. Apple limits hardware support for a product to countries in which it has launched said product, so if your iPad acts up, you will have no choice but to send it to a country where iPad hardware support exists. And no, you will not be able to drop it off at a local Apple Store/Apple Authorized Service Provider and have them send it. Second, if you do decide to go ahead and buy one, make sure you check it for dead pixels before you leave the store. Ask the store employees to connect your iPad to the internet, and download some solid-color images such as the ones here. Bring along a magnifying glass if necessary. If you find a dead pixel, demand a replacement at once. Finally, check the screen for yellow tint. Again, using your internet-connected iPad, download one of Snow Leopard's default wallpapers (this, for example). Compare the output to that of any other mac on display, preferably a Macbook Pro. Why a Macbook Pro? Because they use TN LCD screens, while the iPad uses an IPS one, which should be superior. Don't make the same mistakes I did and become Apple's latest sucker to beta-test their $700 hardware in a country where the iPad hasn't launched. iPad. Now with magical dead pixels and yellow screens!
