    I have been using this thing pretty heavily since i got it. I have been browsing the web non stop and aRching video and playing games. Not once have I felt this thing get warm from the heavy usage. Infact it has stayed super cool. Anyone else happy to be keeping cool on theirs?

    My MacBook burns my lap. That's one of the main reasons I'm getting an iPad.

    I was pretty surprised as well, even with my iPod touch, you could feel it warm up whenever you were doing things on it for extended periods of time

    My iPhone is the same way. Just a little web browsing on that thing and it starts to heat up. But this thing is awesome with no heat or warmth but from legs/lap.

    Pros to me -

    - Way cooler than I expected, but I still think this will be outdated quickly
    - BT keyboard with iPad - Excellent
    - Silent!
    - Not lap burning
    - Fits great in the stand
    - Way long battery life
    - Video looks great



    What I need/want

    - SSH command line editor

    for RDC check out an app called iTap RDP. It is updated for the iPad and works great. With the bigger screen space it is fantastic. Highly recommended.
