Apple profit trounces forecasts, outlook lagsI'm sure this has been widely reported, but:
Apple reported on Wednesday a 78 percent surge in quarterly profit, trouncing Wall Street expectations in a strong holiday season driven by sales of iPod digital music players.The numbers:
Apple posted a profit of $1 billion on revenues of $7.1 billion, both records.
Apple ended the quarter with $11.9 billion in cash.
Apple sold 21.066 million iPods (up 50 percent year over year) and 1.606 million Macintosh computers (up 28 percent).
Apple sold 969,000 MacBooks and MacBook Pros in the last quarter, up over 60 percent year over year. The company sold 637,000 desktop machines in the quarter.
Apple's retail stores sold 308,000 Macs (up 60 percent). Apple has 170 stores, mostly in the US. (I haven't seen a figure for iPod sales from Apple Stores.)
