Well, now that the devices are in the hands of end users: how alive are these overheating rumours?
I got mine yesterday and used it for maybe four or five hours and actually held my hand over the top to see what the heat situation was and only during my first couple hours, downloading a TB of games was there any noticeable heat. Actually in game play use, nothing noticeable.
Its also dead quiet. Not a sound. It’s really quite amazing how well they have built it.
