Office 2013 running slow with Hyper V 2012 R2 Terminal servers and Wyse c10le thin clients

I am looking at replacing our 2 2008 R2 TS running Office 2010 with 2 2012 R2 TS running Office 2013.

I have created the 2 new servers and loaded Office 2013 and all seemed ok when using them with my laptop, so I rolled them out to a couple of test users who are using Wyse c10le thin clients and 24" dual monitors. Since the testing has started they have reported back that move icons around on the screen is clunkey and when scrolling in office 2013 it is slow and does not scroll smoothly.

Can someone tell me whether the thin clients are adequate to do the work and if so what settings on either the thin clients or servers can be changed to improve the visual performance.

Thanks Mark
