I would have to see the breakdown of rev's/profit from each type of store to be able to really have an opinion. There are obviously good reasons for having the smaller stores, but the big stores become destinations. When we went to NYC a few months ago we made it a point to visit the 5th ave store and the Terminal store. Very different stores, but each a must see for Apple fans. No I did not buy anything, Apple missed in July and we had got there the day after. Not to mention having to carry it on the plane.

No brainer for larger flagship stores for every new opening for the next 20+ years. Apple is so under penetrated around the world with its retail stores that it truly is "go big or go home" at this point and for the foreseeable future. Once Apple hits 1,000+ stores maybe they can start to fill some gaps with smaller stores but we are so far from that point that I don't think any of us will ever see it happen.

Desktops might surprise up a bit from my low estimate, but laptops might surprise downward. Cannibalization by iOS devices from laptops is possible.
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
