Doubling the performance is (roughly) what they have done in previous upgrades and that pretty astonishing improvement is seen as just a tweak.

Aren't other tablet manufacturers in the same boat - the tablet paradigm is essentially polished now and you have to resort to gimmicks rather than innovation to have change for change's sake? The laptop paradigm stayed the same for a decade or more while hardware improved, until netbooks and ultrabooks tried to shake things up; even now the basic laptop looks like it did in 1994.
