    ermm the last time i checked if the human body was at 116F we'd be dead.

    Its the same processor as the Ipad 2, it has nothing to do with the CPU, its the quad core GPU.

    116 farenheit = 46.6 celciius = you would be dead at this temp. No amount of downloading would ever cause the ipad to heat up like this, the only difference this round is the quad core gpu, which is not a cpu and is not part of it. Gaming on the Ipad 3 after a few minutes is enough to crank up the heat alone, the more graphically intensive app or game means the gpu has to work harder, which means it heats up more.

    I have the same problem with mine, but it's not near 113 or 116 degrees. It's interesting that others are experiencing more extreme cases.

    Totally Agree
    And people, seriously, stop being trolls about it just for the heck of it. It's simple, don't like, don't buy it!! But don't troll about it!

    I noticed that the new iPad 4g got hot and doesn't charge during game play. Love the screen and can see the speed on wifi and 4G but not charging while I use my iPad isn't cool and it is hot on the left side in portrait mode.

    I don't care if its built to withstand that temperature, your hands aren't. This is America, expect lawsuits.

    Doesn't sound like a big deal to me. Just sounds like its time for someone to come up with a case with a built in fan. Laptops all have a fan along with other accessories you can buy to keep it cool. Xbox, playstation, every company that had any kind of electronic that powerful has needed to eventually invest in a fan of some sort.

    Computers get even hotter than the iPad even if the computer had a fan...

    Is it not the A5X processor? The iPad 2 doesn't have that.
