    Im super upset. MODERATED...PLEASE MIND YOUR LANGUAGE......AS PER FORUM RULES
    got the new ipad and it ran hot left side with just internet on!
    not even heavy stuff! just net surfing one window!
    So first of all i loved the new screen but not at the cost of making my slim and light tablet heavyer then a netbook!
    i mean its realy noticable how much heaver not cool-for the bestest sweetest new apple tablet.
    And then theres the heat i mean its over heating/ running uncomfortably hot in my hands i can even feel heat
    on the topside glass as well and this is within 10/20 minits on internet?
    i live in canada and its cool here now rain and some snow so its still pretty cool here
    no way this thing should be running hot,what happens when its summer and hot as hell out
    no way this new ipad going to make it unless turn screen down to minimum ect
    then whats the point of a tablet you cant see and cant hold?
    super bad apple! you guys dropped the ball ipad 2 is a great tablet
    -learn from what makes it a great tablet. ( slim,light,good battery,powerfull,good screen )* think electric paper!*
    -not laptop thanx.
    And i advise people to get ipad 2s while you can as they are where its at for tablets
    in my humble opinion

    I use a case that is what I will do when I upgrade to iPad 3. That way if I get one hat gets hot that the heat ill not make any difference.

    either you got a defective ipad or you are super sensative to heat and weight.

    My new iPad runs fine.


    as for the weight, what do you expect when they double the size of the battery. Batteries are normaly one of the most heavy parts. Would have been nice if they kept the same shape so that older cases would fit, but I'll take the extra battery life any day.

    Your crazy. I have the iPad2 and the new iPad is barely any heavier. If yours was hot, then you should have exchanged it for another. Like I said, I have both iPads and the very idea of exchanging a 3 for a 2 is ludicrous. After 2 days of using the new iPad, my iPad2's screen looks like crap compared to the new iPad. I gave my 2 to my wife and kids. My 4 year old son can even tell the screen is sharper and my wife that isn't into the tech scene was impressed on how good the new iPads screen looked. I think you should rethink your decision. Your investing into the past and that is unheard of with technology. This was dictated not typed.

    I personally haven't noticed ay difference in the heat or weight. I even have mine covered with an Spigen Harmonie case and leather Smart Cover.

    iPad 2 does run cooler, but the weight is not much more. This is the trade off for the amazing display. Things I notice that make the trade off and $100 higher price worth it over the iPad 2:


    Display is like looking sometimes at real objects rather than images. The image reproduction is that good and comics and web pages also have this effect.

    Lower res apps scale much better and confirmed to be a spec update. Example is over at Touch Arcade.

    Wifi range appears better.

    Games are smoother for some that had frame issues.

    I have the 64GB version. My other tablets are the Thrive 10" and View.

    The effect of the display on the iPad "3" IMO can not be overstated. The iPad 2 and current Android tabs look weak in comparison.

    OP is clearly joking

    The weight difference is negligible, check the specs. The heat is normally measured at 94 degrees, read the reports. That is less than body temperature where I live. It can get up to 116 degrees very briefly, according to the same reports, under extremely extended gaming use. My MB Pro, as I type this, is 130 degrees.

    I have had the original, the iPad2, and the New iPad. The new iPad blows the previous generations completely away in all regards.

    I weary of all the Android provokers that always surface every time Apple releases a new product.
