01-14-2011, 08:52 PM #1Apple to Announce Earnings Next Week, May Have Sold 4 Million Macs
Apple will announce it's FY 2011 First Quarter Earnings Results earnings on Tuesday, January 18 at 5:00 P.M. EST. Apple will provide live audio streaming of the call, and the stream will be available for two weeks after.
The earnings call will reveal just how well Apple products sold during the holiday season. With the recent report that PC sales were not stellar during the same period, many analysts are speculating that consumers opted for iPads and Macs instead of buying a new PC.
Another report from Fortune predicts that Apple may have sold as many as four million macs during this past quarter. Of the 31 analysts polled in the report, the average was 3.84 million macs. This was first quarter to feature the revamped Macbook Air at a much more consumer-friendly price, and new iMac models were released during the summer months.
Although we'll have to wait until Tuesday for the official numbers, unofficial results appear extremely high across the board, not just for the new Macs. Another report looked at 50 apple retail stores, and it seems evident that consumers flocked to the iPad during it's first holiday season. Analyst Chris Whitmore pointed out that Apple benefited great because the iPad had "almost no competition," and even raised his prediction of 15 million iPhones sold worldwide to 16 million.
Whitmore adds that he believes the company has its "strongest offering since it began," and based on recent earnings, Apple is poised to reveal a record earnings quarter that may exceed the company's lofty estimates.

I believe the success of the iPhone has helped Apple sell more macs. Three of my buddies were never Mac people and always argued that they need Windows for whatever, but all three got iPhones within the last two years and now all three have MacBooks.
Once you go Mac you never go back

Some 92 million PCs were shipped during the quarter, according to IDC. Gartner put the number at more than 93 million. The companies measure the market in different ways. The increases over last year, 2.7 percent by IDC's method, and 3.1 percent by Gartner's, were below each firm's prior estimates.
Total PC shipments in 2010 reached 346.2 million, a 13.6 percent increase, according to IDC, and 350.9 million units, according to Gartner.
Iphones, Ipods and Ipads are the profit for Apple. You can now understand the CDMA move, its the only way to continue huge growth in 2011

ASUS, HP and Dell all have Notebooks that when benched tested out perform Macs.
Look I'm not bashing just pointing out that Apple's strength is Iphone Ipod Ipad not Macs, the evidence is clear.
That figure for Apple is gross ( has to be)
My figure est for Dell ( around 12% of market) is about 8 billion (Average PC of 700 USD) 6 billion with average of 600 a PC. You can make these numbers plus and minus

Yeah been trying to get a used MacBook on craigslist for some time now but I think I'll be using tax return $$ for new stress free MacBook. With the ability to run windows, it's an awesome system even though the risk of getting viruses is higher...still worth getting one. Can't wait!!

And if we are already here comparing these things unnecessarily, let's talk advertising and running all of your thousands of stores. This is all overhead that Dell doesn't have (I imagine Dell spends far less advertising thier computers than Apple, either that or I am reading the wrong agazines and watching the wrong TV channels/websites). So, the numbers mayb be 4 billion. How much of that is profit versus Dell? The point is, it isn't as cut and dry as looking at either number (unit sales or total revenue). There are many other factors to consider.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

I work with a girl who's father was asked by his roommate to buy into Apple stock back in the early 80's. His response was, "Whose gonna buy shares of a computer company that's named after a silly fruit?" It's something now, that you don't even bring up around him LOL
