The thing is, iPads aren't really componetized like a laptop or computer. It doesn't have user servicible parts. (For example, my laptop, I can take a screwdriver and swap out the ram or even a disc drive, can't do that with the iPad)
the fee you are paying is to exchange your malfunctioning one for a refurbished replacement. They then send your s back to the factory where I presume 'good' parts are scavenged and it'e remanufacturer to become someone else's refurbished replacement.
