    Hi , I was sceptical at first so went along to my local apple store to investigate this new iPad. I chatted to one salesman who said If I held up my ipad2 against the new one he would show me the difference !
    It was truly amazing. Sharp, crisp ,colour was much much deeper. Text easier on the eye to read .but most of all pics taken through the device and iPhoto were amazingly professional. Sharp , clear colorful images. The whole HD Screen is just die for !
    My prob Is I want one now but have only had my ipad2 for 6 months, loving it too. I have decided to skip this third generation until a later one arrives ! The iPad 4 or Maybe ipad5 .
    I also have an iPad one and it would be lovely to upgrade to each new ones , but a pricey thing to keep up to (
    I still want the new one even after all I've said above haha ! Spoilt

    Apple DID say they are warmer. It WAS on the NEWS this past week. I never said that was in the article I posted. That was just to show the reports. Here is where they say it's "within acceptable levels (http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipa...ment-addresses-talk-new-ipad-running-hot.html ) AGAIN as I said...in the 90's is getting toward the TOP END where you really DON'T want to be. Even another member says that in this post.

    Here is the WIFI complaints: http://www.ipadforums.net/apple-ipa...d-users-complaining-poor-wi-fi-reception.html Again...I am sorry you guys are offended by my posts but until someone can post to the contrary with FACTS like I have then I have reported the truth.

    Warmer is NOT saying there is an issue. It operates within limits. It does not matter if it is towards the upper end, that is NOT an issue because it is STILL within limits.

    You are not quoting facts when do don't understand or twist what they are saying. And whatever wifi problems are being reported are not wide spread or universal.

    LOL....I'm not twisting anything. Do you even understand electronics hardware & the effects heat has on it? Google is your friend. If one year from now the heat did not damage to the new iPads then I'm wrong. Over time will be the true test...go to the Nvidia forums, Intel or AMD forums...heat is discussed at an extreme level. When there is no cooling system (Fan) 95 degrees is close to detrimental. I hope I'm wrong. You boys/Ladies (sorry I don't know which...not trying to be funny) enjoy your iPad 3's...

    Oh and then you may want to tell the mods that those threads I posted were not true so they can remove them ;-)

    Hello Makinnard, If you are starting school @ a University, you might want to check into the school's bookstore. You might qualify for the student discount offered by Apple. The discount is based on the product. As an example, the iPad2 was on sale (before the new iPad announced) for $100.00--off for all sizes and models. This is now the price for all iPad2 products--I suppose while supplies last. The iPad2 is a very good product even if the new iPad has better eeverything else. If you can wait, the new iPad may be available when school starts this fall.

    If you are using it for college, the iPad2 will serve you well. But, if you are going to play games on it, then consider getting the new iPad. You have a wide range of products available. The key factor is how much can you afford to spend? By the way, if Apple's vision for school books gets adopted by Universities, the new iPad would fit well into that vision as text books really do look great on the retina screen.

    This is plain wrong - there is no specification for general electronics - however processors run around 160 def F generally, and laptops generally measure around 122 def F. Some other types of equipment runs much hotter - but anything past 160 has to be insulated to prevent burning the operator.

    mere uninformed speculation.

    Are you talking about processor temperature - in which case 80 would likely be in Celsius, not Fahrenheit?

    Please find me a reliable source where that was quoted - the only measurement that I have seen was that the new iPad gets as hot as the competition.

    No one is riled up - I just don't want speculation to be mistaken for actual facts.

    That is exactly the issue - even if there was one reported to have been running at 140 degrees F you cannot say that this is representative - in fact it would be mis-representative. It would be a problem with one, but in no way should that be taken as anything more than a small failure out of the total number that are out there. And this seems to be exactly what you are doing by insinuating that there are known problems that affect a great many new iPads. That is simply not fact.

    I have had my new iPad since Saturday, March 17th, played with it all weekend, and decided to return it. Not because it was hot but because the screen was showing a really odd light and dark pattern. I returned that iPad on Monday. My replacement iPad has been in daily use since Monday. It is as cool as my iPad 2, the retina screen is as good as everyone has reported. Battery performs as advertised. 4G data service is really fast. I have had no wifi problems.

    So YES, I will and do enjoy my new iPad. I suppose my experience with my new iPad is unique to me? Can my experience be so unique that you cannot extrapolate from my one experience that the vast majority of new iPads are like mine? OR is the preponderance of reports in the news media regarding hot iPads, dropped wifi's, et cetera, etc. be the norm?

    BTW, the moderators do monitor threads, so they are probably aware of this thread. They might take issue with the off topic nature of most of this thread, but the tit for tat has been entertaining. At least we did not degenerate into name calling.

    I like reading about people's ideas and understanding--as long as we can exchange good and thoughtful replies, that is all for the good!

    And if you'd looked into this at all, you'd see the ONLY "competition" that they had done tests against, was the iPad 2. The only Android device that is a real competitor to the new iPad is the Transformer Prime and my flatmates Prime runs just as warm as my new iPad. Why haven't they done tests against the Prime? Because it would end up about the same temp and people would realise it's not a big deal after all. Welcome to the internet. The number one source for misinformation. And you, like many others, fell for it. There is no "problem" with heat on the new iPad.

    My friend, you do not understand much about electronics whatsoever. A mere 15 deg at this temp range is meaningless. Devices are designed to operate fine over and range of temps. And iPad 3 is a different device than iPad 2 and thus its operating characteristics are totally different and you are in no position to judge anything. Do you know the difference between 95 deg C and 95 deg F?

    Boy....
