Has Apple ever made a product with a compromise?

So I thought that given a certain thread is all about Apple, when actually it's about Motorola, why not start a discussion that actually is about Apple.

I keep reading about what Apple will and won't do in the future, the fact that they don't release products with compromises Etc., but what about what they actually have done?

All design of course features some sort of compromise, so I guess what I'm saying is do these future-seeing statements ring true? Has Apple ever released a product with a compromise akin to the black bar on the incredibly wittily renamed Moto 350? Hardware/Software whatever you like...discuss. :)
