Macs are cool, but not updated enough

Not that I would buy a Mac. Not enough games...
I think the Mac is a very spiffy platform, and who wouldn't like UNIX machine that runs Microsoft Office? But these updates are pretty weak.
No hi-res LCDs, and no PCI-E.
So, aside from the cool chassis, what levels up the Mac beyond the ankle-biter PC offerings?
Couldn't Apple jam a second G4 CPU in there? Or a second HDD? Or more SO-DIMM slots for 4GB+ of RAM? Or even a lousy numeric key pad, a video cam, a second battery, &c &c &c ....
