“For pointwise convergence that isn’t uniform, no matter how big we pick the N there will still be arbitrarily large differences”

I think you meant this: no matter how big we pick the N the differences won’t be arbitrary small. I don’t think that equals that the differeces will be arbitrary large, consider for example , . The differences are all in .
