Apple tries to keep up with demand by stockpiling whenever they can.

Impressing the OS on it is one of the VERY LAST steps in the production process.

In short, unless she has any evidence that she's not the first owner, this is a total non-issue and nothing at all out of the ordinary.
Not really a correction, more of an expansion.

My first thought was exactly what you laid out that the date given was driven by manufacture of a key component or subassembly, with final assembly and OS install relatively recently.
My statement was intended to be, and I still believe it, that it is highly unlikely that the fully assembled and boxed iPad has been sitting in a warehouse in China for months. Especially given the continued strong demand.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
