That would be a lot of hours of programming/machining and surface conditioning to simply make a fake....  Not to mention designing the tooling to hold the blank at all of the angle necessary to machine it.....   Possible, but unlikely....
Touchscreen are nearly worthless on Laptops and destops.... The excellent trackpads are far better in almost every way when using a laptop or desktop app. There might be a few paint program that would benefit form a touch screen, but quite limited....
Stupid lawsuit plain and simple....
Had the Mini since November...  Love it...   No problem with the screen resolution....(Maybe my eyes are just too bad for the retina display to be a big deal to me...)   No problem reading it with my bi-focal glasses or bifocal contacts or no glasses/contact at all....   A retina would be nice and an extra mm would be no big deal, but the extra weight could be an issue......   I would be more interested in an A6x in the Mini more than the retina...
  It could also be that they scaled back iPhone 4 production when the iPhone 5 came out and they do not want to increase production on an older units... 
My god people, by the logic of many here if Apple was a jeweler you would say that they could only sell diamonds.     Ruby's, Emeralds, Sapphira's, pearls, etc. would just appeal to the scum of the earth type and Apple should not be chasing their filthy dollars......   That type of argument is just silly....
I think Apple has lost more than Samsung in this war.....   Apple won one big battle in the war with the judgment against them in California, but in my opinion they are losing a public relations war.     However, regardless of outcome of this lawsuit, I do not think that anyone can argue that Samsung got a title wave of free publicity as a result of this war.  I think the sale boost in the Galaxy Phones is a direct result of this publicity.  I do not think...
I personally think that Apple will developers some type of hybrid laptop/tablet.  My guess is that look like an Air with a detachable screen that becomes a standard iPad.  It would have a trackpad and keyboard in the base.  It might have extra batteries, processors and peripheral in the base...   This seems reasonable and I would probably buy one....   However, this surface thing reminds me of a fish and ski boat.  People buy them, and hate them.  They are...
  And how many time have you ever needed to touch the screen with the excellent built in track pad????   I have had Macbooks for about 5 years now and never felt the need to touch the screen...
  Well said...   Also you can get an Air with 8gb of ram and run VMWare Fusion or Parallels (or dual boot) and it can ALSO run window 8 if needed....
