Via webcast conference call, Apple stated its financial earnings today over the past quarter:
• $61 Million profit on revenue of $2 Billion
• iMac G5 CONFIRMED by Apple CEO Peter Oppenheimer
With that kinda profit why so much for the new displays? Maybe a cheaper imac? :confused:

Is there a date? Any info on what G5 they're putting in? How fast, etc. Is there a new design to deal with the heat issues? This is promising news!

This is also a first!

Apple announces a new iMac months before it starts shipping....
Now they confirm a G5 in it....!

Somehow I find this really cool!

To quote from my thread


"It was just asked about the cooling issue and he said supply was the main problem. It felt to me that there was a cooling problem that he didn't want to talk about and maybe G5 supply problems lets them disguise this problem.

Update: Another question was asked about iMac components and the answer was the processor is the critical component definetly doesn't sound like the only issue."

Also on G5s "there will be dual 2.5 delays all through the next quarter and 1.8 and 2.0 through July and some of August"

Reading the news bit http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2004/jul/14results.html it's good to see the number of CPU units are up on the year by 14%. It gives me that warm, almost nostalgic, feeling inside about Macintosh.

Also the bit about the product line up with "some amazing new additions later this year" ... Does the G5 iMac constitute "new", or is there still something else ....?

Apple is DOOMED!!!!

Apple is doomed, Doomed, DOOMED!!!!!! Apple with whither on the vine of computer technology. They make crappy, crash-prone computers that no one wants to buy. Apple will have to switch to x86 chips and make iTunes run only with Windows media next quarter or they will be DOOMED!!!! They can't even turn a profit....

Oh wait....

They just made $61mil this quarter. My bad.

(Sorry. I had to put that in for old times sake.) :p

I don't like the sound of that one bit... is that delays with the initial shipment, or just a slow release of them?

Me likes to hope for the latter

That is a lot of profit, but profit can goes toward a lot of things...i.e. more R&D, dividends, but probably not a cheaper iMac. People pay premium prices for Apple products. Why lower them?

It sounded like it was an on going delay, so I'm thinking the shipping dates given by Apple have taken this into account to at least some extent, although I would bet not perfectly. So I presume it would not overly affect orders already waiting to a but I wouldn't expect stocks of dual 2.5s in stores for quite a while.

Hopefully the announcement of the G5 iMac will boost Apple's stock back up a little. :rolleyes:
The statement that they're having delays shipping the PowerMac's will proabaly bring it down some though.

Oppenheimer is the CFO, for those of you who asked -
I just typed an E instead of F. :p

Yeah, I was wondering if I was the only one who noticed that he was the CFO (Chief Financial Officer, which is why he's mentioned with the quarterly results) instead of the CEO. For those of you who were mentioning this . . . trust me, if Steve were to be replaced it would be huge news, not good news, but huge nonetheless.
