Apple Reports Third Quarter Results

The highlights: 1.7 million Macs sold, 9.8 million iPods, $818 million in profit; those three numbers are up 33, 21, and a whopping 73 percent from the same quarter last year. Notebook computers are outselling desktops by 2-to-1. These numbers certainly validate Apple’s decision to delay Leopard — Tiger certainly isn’t hurting Mac sales.

270,000 iPhones sold in the first two days, and Jobs is quoted in the PR saying “we hope to sell our one-millionth iPhone by the end of its first full quarter of sales”.
