New iPAD is number one on Consumer Report list

(WFLX)- Less than two weeks after Consumer Reports engineers found that Apple's new tablet can get as hot as 116 degrees while running games, the magazine has declared it the best, placing it at the top of its tablet-computer rankings.

Monday's review hailed the new iPad's high-resolution screen, improved camera and longer battery life.

The magazine downplayed the temperature issue, saying it was not a cause for concern.

While the iPad has ruled tablet sales, Consumer Reports did praise some of Apple's competitors, including the Toshiba Excite 10LE and the Pantech Element.
