Wait? The amazing OSX doesn't have iRacing? Awe...

Any truth to it running hot? Not warm, I mean uncomfortably hot.

Haha yes, Fahrenheit.

I figured it was just a bad tablet. If it was rampant, then we'd see more stories on it.

Mine gets warm on the bottom left hand corner. If I had to guess ~ 80-85 degrees. Everywhere else it's cool to the touch. The iPad 2 I had for a few days didn't get hot at all.

My iPad 3rd Gen hasn't gotten hot at all. Maybe a bad batch? I've used mine pretty much all day as we're having a quite spell at work. It's in a solid leather case too.

I've just found Flipbook, I was happy with the iPad before, but now I love it. Best app ever. I'll also add, despite using it constantly I only need to charge it once every two days. I did have to get ASUS AI Charger for work though to charge it a little quicker. (BTW this app works on most motherboards, new and old and most laptops).

BTW (from a page or two ago), if you don't get 64gb you are crazy. App sizes are going to rise as more and more apps are updated for the retina screen.
