Some serious cash there! I just HOPE that this translates to some US jobs.. but investors love the apple margin and people buy the stuff up, so there is no stopping it, at least until someone else comes up with a similar fashion line of computers. Looks like Vizio isn't going to sit on the sidelines, acer may re-stuctre and HP and Dell need to be dwindled down to a few devices with better support, better features, better integration out the door.

Good news but I don't know how many more pieces of hardware they can create after the ipod, ipad, and iphone that consumers will want/need.

All that money in their bank is in stark contrast to the money in the bank and the living conditions of those who actually make the products.
