Laptops help set record

Apple today said that shipped more than 1.6 million Macs during the quarter, "by far" outpacing its previous record, according to Apple executives on Wednesday's quarterly financials conference call. The company said that 58 percent of the company's revenue for the quarter came from Macs--with its strongest growth in Mac portables. Surging 56 percent from the year-ago quarter, laptop sales, which totaled nearly 1 million units, were buoyed by two large K-12 deals that added about 50,000 units to quarter; Apple, however, did not offer any more information on the deals. In contrast, desktop sales grew only 4 percent, despite the introduction of the new iMac late in the quarter. The iMac, Apple said, was in strong demand, lowering quarter-end inventory levels to below the projected 4-6 week range. The company said it air-freighted some iMacs--typically reserved for portables--in order to get the Mac in the hands of its customers and expects that it will do that same for part of the December quarter.
