Chinese iPads Come with Mandatory 2 Year AppleCare Warranties. #ipad


Pick up an iPad in France, Great Britain, California, Canada, etc. and you’ll get the standard 1 year of AppleCare warranty protection with an optional second year for $99. Take a weekend trip to China, however, and you’ll be rewarded with an extra year — mandatory. You see, in China the iPad is classified as a netbook/laptop. And according to Chinese consumer laws, all “computers” must come with a minimum 2-year warranty.

As 9to5Mac points out, it is interesting to see the difference in perception concerning the iPad around the world. Here in the U.S., when people call the iPad a netbook/laptop, I chuckle.

The moral of the story: Get an iPad in China if you’re paranoid about hardware failures.
