What I am sure they know but would hate to acknowledge is that as with cars these days, purchases are generally not made on the basis of specs. People will flood into the Apple Stores, take a look at the new MB, touch it, use it, love it and buy it. Never mind that the MBA is cheaper, faster and plenty good enough for most. The one technical thing I think 'most' people are concerned with is storage. Some people may also be concerned with the lack of ports but that is a...
What? Are you spoiling for a fight this morning? And seriously, you don't get my point? And where did I say I want Apple to be perfect? I am sure everybody at Apple does, and yeah, now that you mention it I'd like that, too. Let me try to explain (shakes head). I simply agreed with TheWhiteFalcon and added a comment. That comment essentially being that now that Apple is massive, small mistakes matter more. Now that Apple is introducing some really important services it is...
Can't. And suspect there never will be one.
Not arguing with any of that. My point still stands, though.
I think massive is an understatement. When services go down worldwide I bet one or two people within Apple feel their neck muscles tightening up. As the minutes and hours go on....
T'is true. When you are as big as Apple little stuff is no longer so 'little'. The biggest problem over time is Apple's reputation. With all the new services Apple is introducing reliability is ever more crucial. From email to Pay - they all require 100% uptime. Hour long outages are big inconveniences that piss people off and although nobody's gonna die (hmmm.... HealthKit?), a bad rep is an opportunity for your competitors. Not that Apple isn't aware. 
1) Currys and PC World were places to avoid when I lived in London. When Macs were sold at PC World the whole thing was a shameful travesty.  2) Curry's at Tottenham Court road is hardly near Regent Street. You can easily walk it but it will take you 15 - 20 mins. 
Luggable is right. I saw a 17" MBP's setup on a shoot. They (2) were mounted in a specialized hard case and included SSD drives and connectors to be able to copy just shot footage directly from camera cards. The kit would be set up in a trailer / truck to provide an on-set edit suite. In other words, the thing was luggable but not easily portable if you wanted to trek solo across the alps. This was a feature film / commercials set-up. As soon as the 17" mbp's were...
I agree, those damn state banquets!
There is so much scope for development the mind boggles. I remember a few years someone claimed it was the 'golden age' for Apple. Perhaps it has only just started?
