    I've had an iPad 3 since launch day and I often experience lagging jumpy scrolling on web pages. Is this the result of the retina display with an underpowered processor? It doesn't happen all the time, but it does happen a lot. I went to the Apple store to try out the new ipad4 but wasn't able to reproduce the problem. Does anybody know if its been improved with the 4?

    No lag on my 4 (did have a 3). No yellow tint issue with the screen either which is a bonus :).

    I have experienced a "not so smooth" scrolling screen twice and it disappeared as quick as it appeared. I think some sites are just over taxing the CPU while trying to scroll. The faster processor in the 4 should be more than enough to handle this. It is to a big deal. I am most interested in the promised "faster Internet speeds", but that will be subjective in measurement.
