Maybe you should qualify that statement if you don't intend this to be part of a comedy routine.

Actually, far from it. The Q1 2012 estimate was only $9.30 from AAPL and they crushed it with $13.87 actual EPS.

Keep in mind that AAPL is conservative and crush their own estimates while analysts are all over the damn place. Do what I do, don't listen to analysts.

If you think Apple "barely sells any computers anymore", you should probably check again:

http://techcrunch.com/2012/09/12/app...otebook-sales/

Plus, we are making the transition from computers to tablets anyway. All that factored in, I'd say they've got pretty undeniable sales.

Apple is Doomed

What a disappointing results. Analysts expected 15M ipads but apple sold only 14M ipads.

interesting that year on year growth of Macs is only 1%. I thought they would be more successful in selling iOS devices as gateway drugs.

Yes - proof that rumors concerning the imminent demise of the Mac are grossly exaggerated. Time to release the new MacPros and the fabled xMac, Tim?

That does provide some insight about the new iPad release. They need to invigorate purchasing for Q1.

the industry is down 10%, mac refreshes were much later than expected.

wait and see 6 million macs sold next quarter, together with 25millions iPad ( mini included), 40million iphones and 15 million iPods.

then what? Apple is doomed?

How many "new iPads" did they sell in the quarter before they tossed it on the scrap heap?

The only reason to attribute low sales of the iPhone in this quarter is people awaiting the release of the iPhone 5. This holiday quarter will crush your pessimism.
Amazing how people fail to grasp such simple things, isn't it?

scares me how many macs there are and sold, and its such a small percentage. And damn at 50% for iPhone. That's 72% from iPad/iPhone.

And unlike you, analysts did not know this in advance and had unreasonably high expectations, right? Brilliant!

Stop asking financial questions. Ask about iTunes 11 release date!

Pass some of what you're smokin' buddy. They matched or beat almost all the analysts' estimates, and added $8 billion to their warchest. Only in today's weird market could this not be considered good.

It's good, but not $600 per share good.
