Apple Apple Computer on Wednesday reported the financial results of its third fiscal quarter, characterizing the numbers as "the highest revenue and earnings in the company's history." The halo effect seems to be confirmed, as Macintosh unit sales grew by 35%.

honestly, I had mentioned that they were going to do terrible during this transition period but it seems that
was not the case. I am very happy for apple. again: "In Jobs we trust."

If this is third-quarter results, then the news probably came too late to affect their sales for this quarter. So if it has an effect, it'll show up next quarter or later. That said, I don't know how much the switch will affect sales anyway. Does your average Mac buyer even read technology publications?

The quarter ended roughly 20 days after the Intel announcement, so you are correct. And why would you think that the average Mac buyer wouldn't read technology publications? Seeming as you pretty much have to make a conscious decision to buy a Mac, I would imagine that they are more likely to do so than (say) Wintel users.
