`And putting 4011 label on it doesn't make it any more x011 series than any other random 10 port router
Oh come now. You can't be serious. The 3011 and 4011 have more in common with each other than an IBM-era ThinkPad and a modern Lenovo-era ThinkPad...sheesh.
I think the most strange omission is the USB port. And I'll agree that the switch chip might be problematic as well, but let's be honest: none of the switch chips used in non-CRS RouterBoards have been particularly stellar...each one seems to fall short in one way or another.
The USR LED, LCD screen, and honestly even the speaker I couldn't care less about. Maybe a read-only LCD screen can be nice at times, but I never found the "touch input" aspect of it particularly useful (especially since it isn't capacitive!), and in previous models reports were that it seemed to cause weird CPU load issues so it was best turned off anyway.
Besides the fact that it is a >1GHz quad-core ARM, though, in the list of "added features" compared to 2011 you also left out the following:
Quad-core (like I said)
1GiB of RAM (same as 3011, 8x as much as 2011U, 16x as much as 2011L)
0.5GiB of NAND storage (4x as much as 2011 and 3011)
So compared to older models it has quite a bit more oomph when it comes to the actual internals. It is just a shame that there is either no SD card or USB like you said, and also that the switch chips might potentially be duds (though maybe MikroTik can manage to pull out a software miracle there, so I'll take a wait-and-see approach to that one).
