GLOBAL - Since the launch of New iPad, the Apple's third-generation tablet has taken a lot of heat. Reports have been insisting that New iPad runs hotter than iPad 2 and other tablets. However, tests conducted at the PCWorld labs concluded that the emission of heat is a general problem with any tablet PC.
A Raytek Raynger ST-Handheld Infrared thermometer was used to conduct the test. Multiple temperature readings were taken of each of the tablet on the front, the back and several other heating points.
The conclusion of the test suggested that the New iPad was only 8-degrees Fahrenheit warmer than iPad 2, about 2-degrees Fahrenheit warmer than Samsung Galaxy Tab and almost 5-degrees Fahrenheit warmer than Asus Eee Pad.
Additionally, the test found out that each of the device has their own hot points, and that all of the machines got much hotter when plugged in charger rather than running on battery power alone.
Still, one fact that must be noted is that New iPad runs on almost double-sized battery compared to any other tablet and so a few degrees more should not be taken as a big problem.
