They said there were several complaints about the 3 gen running hot. Will be interesting when our Forum folk test it.

Consumer reports are full of people that don't understand anything outside of their little world. I don't think most of them get out of the office much and actually use anything or have any idea what type of people products are marketed to.

If you happen to fall into the same stereotype they cater to, you will agree with everything they say.

Eh? I've seem the same findings reported by other outlets. Are they also afflicted with the same inability to properly test products? Ten degrees Fahrenheit may not be a drastic increase, but worth noting.

9 degrees warmer is what I last saw, briefly. Didn't read anything else about it.

Yes, I have no doubt that several people said it was "hot."

Over 3 million new iPads have been sold.

I think the radio said 116 degrees. I don't know how hot is hot. I'm just reporting what I heard.

I'm not defending CR but over the years I have had great success with their reports on a variety of items.

I've used mine for hours and not noticed this.

Not saying it didn't happen but I didn't notice it.

Do you own a prior model? How does the heat compare?

Maybe not all iPad are afflicted? It wouldn't shock me if there was a bad batch. Alternately, new iPads might run a little hotter, but people who have never owned an iPad before wouldn't have a point of reference for comparison.

I've used my husband's 2 [it has a back cover] and my 3 in my lap for over an hour and I haven't noticed excessive heat -- certainly not like having a MBP in your lap.

They just ran a story on the local news. Apparently they find that some games make the unit run hot. I didn't key in on the specifics, but the end result was the temp difference was not enough to be considered a danger or a defect in the product.

Yeah it's warmer than the iPad 2.

Still a lot cooler than the noisy MSI netbook that I still haven't gotten rid of.

I've used my wife's iPad 1 extensively and didn't notice that getting hot either.

It wouldn't surprise me if there were apps out there that push various parts of the iPad guts to their limits. Heat is of course the result. All computing devices behave this way.

At least one report in billb's linked thread mentions side by side tests where one got hot and one didn't, doing the same things.
A bad run is my guess.

No hotter than my 2, near as I can tell.
