The Tesco Hudl comes with a quad-core CPU and 1GB of RAM - this is pretty good for a tablet at this price point, although it feels a little redundant.

In terms of basic hardware, the iPad isn't overly impressive, although the 1,024 x 768, 9.7-inch diagonal screen is absolutely gorgeous.

Tesco Hudl  vs iPad 1 

The Hudl's is far from the best 7-inch display we've ever seen, and it doesn't hold a candle to the latest Nexus 7's 1920 x 1200 screen.
