iPhone 3G drives solid returns for Apple

Executives remain optimistic despite economic downturn

Apple sold 11 million iPods during the quarter, an 8% growth over the same quarter a year ago. iTunes and retail store sales also were up.

Apple reported its results using non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The alternate accounting approach is designed to eliminate the impact of ongoing subscription sales for the iPhone and Apple TV. Using non-GAAP techniques, Apple reported US$11.7 billion in adjusted sales and US$2.4 billion in adjusted net income.

Like other US technology firms, Apple gave conservative projections for the next quarter. Revenue could come in at US$9 billion to US$10 billion, and earnings per share could be US$1.06 to US$1.35, it said.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
