Flash memory makes MacBook Air even more profitable #apple

It’s a bit like the Bible, which I translate freely – thus who have most should be most given. As if it isnt enough that Macbook Air is thinner, lighter and faster than most laptops. It’s even cheaper to build and Apple are earning more than other producers! A post from The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) by Mike Schramm tells the story. Here is a part:

We already know the MacBook Air is thinner than most laptops, but it turns out that the stack of money it makes Apple isn’t. An analyst named Brian Marshall of Gleacher & Co. says that the flash memory in the MacBook Air is one of the big places that Apple makes its money on the machine, reportedly costing Apple just $80. According to Marshall, this means the profit margin on the Air is between 28 and 37 percent; that’s almost 10 percent higher than Apple’s traditional MacBook lines.
