MacBook buffs AAPL

Due to stronger-than-expected MacBook shipments, J. P. Morgan Securities today raised its second quarter estimates for Apple, saying that the above factor made up for slower iPod and iPhone sales. Thanks to the boost in portable sales, J.P. Morgan raised both Apple's second-quarter and 2008 yearly profit estimates from $1.05 and $4.94 per share, to $1.09 and $5.04 per share, respectively, according to Reuters. Mac shipments for the quarter are also estimated to be higher, at 2.11 million units, versus the earlier prediction of 1.97 million.

The iPhone is currently facing a few issues, such as stock shortage, and pressure regarding a potential 3G iPhone. One user discovered a 3G-capable chip system is already accounted for in the latest SDK release, indicating the upgrade could be any day now.

    I don't think so.

    I thought they dropped Computers from their line, ya-know when they became just Apple. I mean those Macs were too expensive anyway and no one bought them.

    I miss my Powerbook 5300....on second thought I don't miss that one.

    The iPhone IS a computer

    It's running a variation of OS X. SSH into it and you'll find it's all quite familiar.

    Well it was either Apple Computer iPod iPhone AppleTV Inc, OR just drop all the extra and go with Apple Inc.

    ...or within any arbitrary time period that MacNN editors need to sound sensationalist.

    Right, because the presence of code in a piece of software that's in BETA and won't be released until JUNE, would indicate the release of accompanying hardware to be 'any day now'?

    Classic yellow journalism...

    And I thought this meant the imminent release of the much-anticipated and long-awaited Powerbook G5.

    any day now

    by "any day now" I'm guessing you mean June 4th.
