So... How much do you think the new Macbook Aluminum costs Apple to make?
Around $800 factoring in 30% profit margin.
Wait to see what iSuppli says about the BOM.
Didn't apple mention on a call to shareholders that a new design and manufacturing process will mean Apple wouldn't enjoy such a high profit margin, at-least to start with?
I'm guessing it's reasonably low compared to past products, however will increase as time moves on!
Well, 30% sounds low considering that an iPod Nano costs 20-40 bucks to make. I think Apple makes 50% on these, so $650 for a 2.0Ghz
Welcome to corporate america!
Right... How much were 16GB flash chips going for, again?
because the BOM is the only factor..... I mean who cares about the engineering, machining, testing, etc
The cost to make it is only one factor in its retail price. There's research, engineering, shipping, marketing and a host of other costs involved.
