Playbook gets very hot

I noticed after extended use the machine gets very hot to the touch underneath & where the ports are placed. It is almost too hot to have on bare skin, just wondering if this is normal?

Re: Playbook gets very hot

This doesn't sound normal, if it's too hot to touch then you have a serious problem.


This might be obvious, but are you using it in strong sunlight?


I would check if anything is blocking the vents. If the problem persists, I would contact RIM and report a faulty Playbook.
