I am happy with the way Apple is currently making their products except I do not want to see soldered RAM in the Mini and iMac. I like being able to install my own RAM and I'd like to be able to continue to install my own SSDs (unless Apple keeps up the price and technology which they did this year but did not do last year).

Then be sure to express those opinions on the site. Apple can't hear what isn't said. By the way I thought you wanted a real GPU in the Mini?

I did actually although I went with the minimum of what I expect to happen. While I would love a real GPU in the Mini, I don't think they'll do it. So just allow me at the very least to change my own RAM, and perhaps make the SSD standard or as easy to change as the original uMBP.
Really? My experience and that of a lot of other people is that feedback is a giant black hole, the circular storage file which is there almost entirely for PR reasons to make people think that the company listens. I have been told that Apple takes these comments seriously, etc, etc by company men, but I don't actually believe them, at least in part because of the examples they cite. There were some OS problems that resulted in tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of inputs to feedback which they cite as an example of how well the system works. Well, the truth of the matter is that is that the problem was extensively reported in the press and Apple was getting bad PR as a consequence. In other words, they knew about it from other sources.
I know, "it can't hurt" to make feedback input, but don't be deluded into thinking that Apple really makes major changes based upon it. Apple is fundamentally a top down company.
