The selling point of an Apple product has never been about technical specs or hardware, and people who complain about not having this or that particular piece of technology are kind of missing the point.

There are still plenty of things which can be improved (starting with that dreadful iTunes software) - but by and large, there's a reason why Apple is so easily and readiy embraced by people who like their products, and most of them will tell you it is not about hardware.
nm ..lol. responded to wrong thread. Sorry!
I don't agree with either of you on this at all. It's a COMBINATION of tech spec advances AND looks/feel of the product that have given Apple such a market leading position. Not the total objective of being maxed out to the limit on tech but still 'out there' whilst the looks side def out there...
