Apple Apple may not want the word 'computer' in its title anymore, but it's hard to ignore the impact of the Macintosh on the bottom line. Despite a report of flat shipments, plus all the attention given to the iPod, iPhone and Apple TV in the last month, the Mac had a solid quarter for the period that ended on Dec. 30. Apple reported selling about 1.6 million of its signature product during the quarter. The Mac also saw its revenue share increase by about 40 percent compared to last year.

Boat anchor? Apple sold 1,606,000 Macs last quarter. According to Apple's press release, that represents a 28% increase in Mac sales over the same quarter last year. All in all, their gross profit margin increased 4% over the same quarter last year, to a solid 30.2%. Would that we could all be so weighed down!
