There are always issues to improve speed & quality in the first run of products, but the production has been ongoing for months, so I doubt anything serious has suddenly "popped up" since these issues would be known from the start of trial runs. I call BS.
If you give up your source code to your Internet infrastructure hardware, what else do you have left that is proprietary? Seems like that is the end of Cisco hardware in China.
When you can't cite your own success, try to tear down your competitor.  Worked real well over the last decade, right?   I see absolutely nothing wrong with the speedup and simplification of the new MacBooks.   Looks like Apple has just moved to limit the laptop line to 2 models:  MacBook and MacBook Pro.   MacBook Pros are going to be truly wonderful performers at the top end and no doubt have more ports.  Many people don't realize how powerful existing MacBook Pros...
Apple is already an expert in battery design, construction, testing and manufacturing, since at least back from iPod days with flat pack Lithium Ions. The new tech for Apple will not be "old Lithium Ion designs." My guess is that Apple will use much safer, higher capacity more efficient technology like BASF just announced with their advanced NiMH techniques. Yup it may take 3-5 years to enter with a new battery into the market. That is typical Apple behavior to get in...
Chromebooks are "in" over the buggy BSOD machines as a rebound effect, in my personal opinion. Most every kid I come across either uses a MacBook or wants his parents to get one. Why? Mostly because Apple's laptops are relatively rugged, even in school, and have fewer problems. For more capable students, what other machine lets you run Mac, Windows, Linux native if you want it or in emulation?
Interesting that Samsung & Google appear to be fighting the battle for the low cost devices. Tizen is Samsung's attempt to differentiate. Google's attempt is even tighter contract limitations. Sounds like Samsung has realized you can't deal with Google and must strike out on their own to become vertically integrated like Apple.
Analysts may be confused or uncertain, but consumers know. They speak to and discuss with friends and co-workers. Computer users everywhere know quality and they know malware problems. They know effects of phishing and malware crap. That Apple is benefiting from consumers figuring out the right answer is not surprising.

Chess time for an interim move. Long term, I would guess Apple does its own LCD facility somewhere in Asia. They have the volume/need to do it. Samsung either sells to Apple or Apple bails at some point. Pure guess is that a future version of advanced AMOLED may be what Apple wants before ordering a factory.
Can't tell you how many people I know who use Samsung & Windows who pooh-pooh the idea of a phishing-botnet-malware attack on their equipment. I've almost given up talking about it except in a new business startup where some people from "corporate America" think Windows is the only way to get things done.
