Last week, “Consumer Reports” played up its findings that the new iPad can heat up to as much as 116 degrees Fahrenheit when plugged in and continually running a game. Now the product review publication says ( the Apple tablet is the best one around. Among its notes, “Consumer Reports” says:

° “The high-resolution screen of the new iPad establishes a new benchmark in excellence, providing the best rendering of detail and color accuracy we’ve ever seen on a tablet display.”

° “Performance on the new iPad was superb in virtually every other way as well.”

° “The 5-megapixel camera took very good photos.”

° “Verizon’s 4G network yielded very fast, dependable connectivity to a 4G-compatible version of the iPad in our informal tests.”

° “Despite the energy-intensive display and graphics, the iPad still has longer battery life than all other tablets”

° “….further tests that confirmed the new iPad is warmer in its hottest spots than the iPad 2. But we didn’t find those temperatures to be cause for concern.”
