iPad engraving popular for Christmas

04th November 2010 - Fine Cut

Those contemplating buying an iPad for their loved one this Christmas can make it a gift they will never forget by getting it engraved.

Apple has announced it will be offering added extras to customers allowing them to add a two-line message to their loved one engraved on the back of the tablet, just below the antenna plastic.

However, the firm have warned people to be sure they know exactly what they want the laser engraving on the slate to say, because they will not be offering refunds on engraved iPads. Consumer's should note the refund policy for the product will be the same as it is for personalised iPods.

The iPad is expected to be one of the most wanted luxury Christmas gifts this year, some analysts have expressed their concern that Apple may not be able to meet consumer demand.

Between July and September this year, Apple sold 4.2 million iPads and 14.1 million iPhones, just 800,000 units short of the five million sales that were predicted. A number of rivals to the iPad are now hitting the marketplace. However, Apple CEO Steve Jobs recently hit out at the 7 inch models describing the display as too small.

The Metro have reported the service will be available from Apple's store for a number of years, but those considering purchasing an engraved tablets should be aware they come with a slightly longer shipping time. Customers wanting to ensure their delivery comes on time or those wanting to write a more personal message which is longer than two lines, may wish to take their gift to a specialist to engrave.
