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.

Yeah I plan to resell every idevice I get within a yr or so, so I never even consider this... Off topic: why does everyone hate Mike so much???

You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

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

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

Hi Michael Essany,
About your article: " Free iPad Engraving from Apple During the Holidays"
First all iPad is not a Rolex is not need to engraving
because after 6 month this iPad going be outdate...
But would you want to buy someone else's iPad with their name on it...
If Apple want help us... cut the price of the iPad and add gps inside it with the pin number from customer...
Because if someone stole it you will find quickly...
