a little over a year old, it is probably not possible to state what the typical life span of one of these devices is.
Replacing any LCD screen is not going to be a cheap endeavor so an extended warranty is always worth the effort on these type of devices. (laptops too)
Normally, Apple products are very reliable but of course, there is always the odd lemon out there, no matter what you buy
I'm a college student, and I'm wanting to invest in the new ipad 2. The thing is i'm a bit worried shelling off over $500 on a product that maybe wont last long. The screen dying or something malfunctioning a year or after the warranty.
How reliable are apple products such as the ipad? What are the ipad's typical life expectancy? Also, and if so Is it necessary to buy an extended apple care warranty?
Appreciate any help.
