Apple refunding recent iPad customers $100

If you bought an iPad in the last two weeks, and now feel silly, you’ve got some options.

If you want to return the iPad and wait another week for the iPad 2, most retailers (including Apple) accept refunds.

If you want to keep that vintage iPad in hopes of being cool with your suddenly-retro tablet, Apple is willing to refund you $100. Simply take your receipt into an Apple Store or call Apple’s customer service line to get the ball rolling.

The cut-off date for purchase is February 16.
