I don't think there was ever an honest debate about whether the new iPad runs as hot as many laptops. It doesn't. Frankly, this whole thing is a non-issue that began simply because many of us who bought a new iPad were surprised by how much warmer it runs than our previous iPad. My new wifi iPad definitely runs warmer than my previous wifi iPad 2. But does it run hot? No, not really. Just warmer than I expected. The new screen is frigging amazing.
