    Hello everybody

    Has there been any indications on the heat generated by the Retina Mini? I'm sporting an iPad 3 that's notorious for its hot bottom left corner. So obviously I'm wondering what the preliminary tests show in terms of heat for the new Mini.

    My mini never really heats up, even when exporting from iMovie or playing graphics intensive games... My iPhone 5S does though...

    EDIT: Sorry, replied too quickly.. What I mean is my non-retina mini doesn't heat up..

    Yeah, that's why I'm curious :) The Retina screen has a nasty habit of drawing a lot more power, so I'm pretty sure that it will be noticeable on the Retina Mini to some extend. Hopefully it won't be as crazy as with the iPad 3.
