  • Free iPad Engraving from Apple During the Holidays



    Apple is on yet another iDevice engraving spree, this time for the iPad during the holiday shopping season. According to an announcement from the company, Apple will serve up complementary engraving exclusively through its online store.

    So if you want to generously give your friend Bob a new iPad for the holidays, the tablet can be personalized to say "Bob's iPad" - or perhaps something a little more thoughtful and creative. Nonetheless, the engraving of mobile electronics devices (like the iPod) is surprisingly popular and will likely prove a hit for Appe during the remainder of 2010.

    Despite its hefty cost, the iPad is expected to be a highly sought-after gift for the holidays, a situation Apple has prepared for by aggressively expanding the retail outlets that carry the tablet. In time for the holidays, the iPad will be available through Wal-Mart, Target, Best-Buy, and AT&T and Verizon stores.

    With regard to how much space is available for a personal message on iPads purchased online through Apple, Apple is giving you two lines of free engraved text that will be placed on the back of the tablet. It is, however, important to point out that engraving an iPad could lengthen the shipping time upwards of three additional days - not an ideal situation for last-minute holiday shoppers.

      For anyone that wants to eventually sell their iDevice this is a really bad idea. Would you want to buy someone else's iPad with their name on it or some personalized message? lol... drops resale value from day one!

      Just another way for Apple to make sure you can't sell there product to someone else. I know i wouldn't buy an ipad that says "Bob's ipad" on it. Or " To Jimmy,Love Grandma."

      I've never liked engraving on any of the iDevices. They do a really good job of it and it looks nice, but I end up selling or giving my stuff to someone else eventually.

      My distaste for him is from when he went for like a month solid of nothin but rumors about a verizon iphone and how the i4 would be on verizon. It was everyday a new rumor on an unconfirmed source. Once it was a rumor based on what a best buy employee said. But back on topic this is actual news and a cool thing apple is doing 2 lines free. Thanks Messany for not posting a rumor

      Way to tell him, people need to be told that.

      I always though the engraving was a nice idea, but i would to worried about if i did that, the person would not like what i wrote and they would have to see it the rest of the life of the idevice.

      Not to mention that you can't return an engraved I-device if you don't like it. Genius thinking on Apple's behalf.

      What people hate is his willingness to write about anything and everything that mentions Apple with an absolute disregard as to whether or not it's backed up by facts or even credible sources. When he writes informative pieces, such as this, I thoroughly enjoy them.

      As far as engraving goes, "Pwned For Life" would be a nice one to get that wouldn't terribly hurt it's resale value.
