Heat-gate was a nonissue. Click to enlarge. It’s not often you can get 200 people to agree about anything, nevermind something as controversial as a new Apple AAPL product. But on several issues the new iPad owners surveyed last week by ChangeWave Research were practically unanimous. 98% were either satisfied (16%) or very satisfied (82%) with their new toy What they liked best “by a landslide” (75%) was the high-res display 89% said the much-publicized heat issue was either not a problem or something they had never experienced No other tablet is getting stratospheric satisfaction ratings like this, not even the iPad 2. Only 74% of iPad 2 owners surveyed in February pronounced themselves “very satisfied.” And based on a side-by-side comparison of “Heatgate” and “Antennagate,” ChangeWave concluded that the operating temperature of the new iPad was a non-issue for most users: “Simply put, the heat issue does not appear to be a perceived problem for the overwhelming majority of new iPad owners.” See below.
