so i don't get it ? why everybody on the forum says it takes forever to charge ?? and get hot ? and several screen issues??

why mine is perfect ? I'm a just a lucky guy ???

and yes its a new iPad, not iPad 2, i have the 2 also, so i know the difference

I never complained about the iPad. As for the battery charging, yes it will take longer to charge than the iPad 2 due to having a larger battery (can't refute that, but it's not as bad as some people make it). I wouldn't say that you're lucky, i'd say that some people are unreasonable and test their products in conditions in which a normal person would not use it. It's a $500 device, not a $50,000 car.

That's good for you now enjoy it, my $1000 lottery ticket(screen) just didn't give me great odds because I lost. If I wanted to gamble on a device I would have taken my money to a tax for the stupid lottery center and bought a $1000 worth of scratch tickets. This is my second iPad and all I can say is my time and money isn't worth another gamble, it is ridiculous and so frustrating having to go through this .

So enjoy your iPad you won the jackpot!

Don't make draining the battery a habit as that may shorten the life of today's rechargeables. Apple recommends draining it once a month just to recalibrate the battery meter.

It's not that some new ipads have "problems" and others don't, it's just that users' perceptions vary. I had a new ipad for a week, and yes, it gets noticeably warmer than the ipad 2. But is that a "problem"? Depends on whether it bothers you. IMO, the warmth was enough that I could see it bothering some people but also slight enough that I could see it not mattering to many others. So really, the "problem," or lack thereof, is in the eye of the beholder. But it's not that some ipads are different from others.

Some iPads are different than others and that's a fact that I experienced, my first iPad was almost a burn to the touch. I am on my second iPad and do the exact same tasks as I did on my first and it is much much much cooler .

Let's not start making uneducated comments on here because you just haven't experienced it!

Don't forget many people who have great iPads, don't come here and tell us (usually). Those with issues come here and ask help. You can't judge things like this based on this forum alone.
