Received my new iPad today and I love the new screen...but right off I noticed that it gets really-really hot. I have the original iPad and have used it for hours at a time and it has never, ever got hot. Is this normal? I don't like it...it makes the iPad hard to use for a long period.
So after reading some other posts - I remembered that I did increase the brightness of my screen to 100% shortly after first turning it on- as it seemed dim while I was checking out the suposed incredible new graphics. And they are great! Then since it had been such a long day that I had opted instead of really checking out the ipad to just watch some shows on hulu - so my experience with the heat was while it was at full brightness and after a couple of hours of streaming video while the ipad was in a case made for my old ipad. I haven't had a ton of time to experiment with it or even use it for that matter since I wont take it out of the house till my new case comes in the mail. But I have reduced the brightness and haven't really experienced any more heat problems in the short moments I have used it for light activity.
