But that 300ppi display
It's true the Nexus 10 is definitely more powerful. The dual-core Cortex A15 at ?1.7GHz? is quite a power house. The iPad 4 does have its own pros though, such as a more powerful GPU -- by about 60% in the Egypt HD test.

More battery life along with faster performance.

Yes they optimise it very well. The Swift cores in the A6 and A6X have very aggressive power management. They idle very low. On top of that they're using Samsung's High-K metal gate on a 32nm process which both reduces power consumption and leakage.
