Apple's 3Q by the numbers

Apple's second strongest quarterly profit of $472 million was driven by strong laptop and iPod sales, as well as a very strong showing from its retail segment. Apple in the June quarter saw a hefty 61 percent year-over-year increase in unit sales of its portables, as the company launched its consumer-based MacBook and sold the MacBook Pro for an entire quarter; however, Apple saw a decline in the sales of desktops. The company sold nearly 800,000 laptops, and only 529,000 desktops, a drop of 23 percent from the year-ago quarter. Overall, the company saw a year-over-year unit sales increase of 12 percent for Macs and 32 percent for iPod sales. Apple's retail division achieved a 50 percent increase in unit sales and nearly a 30 percent increase in revenue.

In addition, the company saw modest unit growth, but strong revenue growth in each of its operating segments, including the Americas (8% unit/26% revenue growth), Europe (6% unit/21% revenue growth), and Japan (4% unit/14% revenue). Apple's 'Other Segments', which includes its FileMaker division and Asia Pacific, also saw a modest increase in unit sales (6%), but a significant increase in revenue (21%). Overall, Apple sold 12 percent more units than the year-ago quarter and increase overall sales by 24 percent in its operating segments.
