There's no sign of judder or slow down, just silky smooth transitions, which is impressive as even the quad core Google Nexus 7 has the occasional hiccup but in our time with the Nexus 10 it performed almost flawlessly.

The screen is a 1,280x800-pixel display with in-plane switching (IPS), which Asus reckons makes for wider viewing angles and better daylight visibility.
