    I have got my Rev C 128g for a week. Everything is wonderful for me expect one thing. The top left corner of the keyboard near the power port is much hotter than other part, which makes my left hand a little unccomfortable. Is it normal?

    My question is not quite about heat. My problem is that the top left corner of keyboard is MUCH HOTTER than other part.

    Sounds like your original question was about heat to me...

    Anyways, yes the upper left part of the keyboard will be hotter because that's where the processor is.

    The 'Yep' part of my reply was the direct response to your question. As someone else posted that is normal. The 'point' of the link was to show that certain applications can increase the processor operating temperature by as much as 35 C (or 95 F). Therefore, what you are doing could affect how hot your keys feel. Be sure the unit is well ventilated.

    Its the charging port. It gets very hot for some reason even if its running on Battery.
