“Apple brought in $4.976 billion in revenue from the sale of 3.76 million Macs last quarter. Divide the $4.976 billion in revenue by 3.76 million Macs and you get an average selling price of $1,323.40,” Matt Richman blogs.
“A June 1st research note from Peter Misek of Jefferies & Company pegged Mac gross margins at 28%,” Matt Richman explains. “Multiply $1,323.40 by .28 and Apple makes $370.55 for every Mac sold… HP makes $52.00 for every PC they sell.”
Richman reports, “Apple makes more money from the sale of one Mac than HP does from selling seven PCs.”
