When I bought my iPad the other day at Verizon, one of their demo units was quite hot and the other wasn't. I was ion the store a couple of days earlier and both were cool then. When I pointed it out to the rep at the store,about the hot iPad, she told me that they leave them on and plugged in all the time and that the heating was "normal". One is hot and the other not... I don't think so. I wonder how long it'll be before one has enough of a problem to hurt someone. I've used mine quite a bit (no serious video gaming) since getting it and have had no problems.

Not to offend anyone but this is ridiculous. People are blowing this way out of proportion, mainly mainstream media actually. And of course it gets warmer than the previous models! Look at the differences - quad core graphics, retina display, etc... These will = higher operating temp.

I gotta say, this is far and a way blown out of proportion. It's was almost preventing me from getting a new iPad.
Now that I have one in my hands, the only time, and I do mean the ONLY time this thing even begins to heat up is when I'm downloading a crap ton of large apps. Past that, it never gets past luke warm.
Even with some major gaming happening.

i played ME infiltrator for about an hour straight yesterday. It got really hot and as aluminum gets hot it spreaded over all back casing but I have my ipad inside the Buxton cover which i bought at Staples. so it wasnt that noticeable untill i took it out. However people have to understand that with upgraded internals like that it is expected for a device to get hot pretty quickly. my old Motorola Atrix tegra 2 phone was getting hot when i played games on it. its just how the modern chips are built. i'm not concerned with this issue and i think people mostly complain because they're used to their ipad 2 which wasnt overheating. macbooks get hot very quickly all laptops with graphics cores and all high-end smartphones geet hot hell even all tegra android tablets. nothing is wrong with that...

I am on my second one. I have tried both an AT&T and a Verizon model. I have to say that I think the AT&T model I have gets much hotter than the verizon model did. However, the VZW model was still way to hot for my tastes. This new one feels like I am holding a plate warmer. I don't get it. Does anyone at Apple bother to take the time to use these new devices?
New iPad going back today. Gonna get an iPad 2 and enjoy not scalding my hands.
