    Hi guys and gals

    Got the new 64gb wifi iPad and first of all, what a beast! now onto my worry. When im using my iPad for browsing the internet, emails and light use applications its fine but when i run a graphic hungry app such as Modern Combat 3 or Real Racing 2 HD the bottom left of my iPad starts to heat up.
    I know the graphics are insane on these apps but my old iPad 2 didn't do it with the same apps.

    Am i being too cautious or should i be worried?

    Thanks

    Same here, I wouldn't worry about it. I imagine the back of the case is supposed to act like a heat sink as the heat has to go somewhere. There were some reviews that said it gets pretty warm while charging the battery too.

    My iphone gets pretty hot from extended use too.
