Wow.... do not know what to say, but you basically just condemned apples entire existence. It's never been about the differentiation or advantage of its specific chipsets and hardware. It's about the product and vision that they created with those parts. The sum has always been greater through a combination of design, ui, software and vision focused on solutions and ease of use.
