There is rampant speculation in London's financial district that Apple may be planning to buy ARM, the processor design company many of us have a soft spot for. Shares of ARM went upwards quickly when the speculation started, making it the biggest winner of London's FTSE.

C64 dropped well below $200 while Commodore was still a profitable business. Later when the price dropped into the hundred dollar range Commodore was hurting.

But yes, vertical integration can really drive the costs down and/or profits up.
