Profit Margin of 8GB iPhone Estimated at 55 percent

The recently released iPhone from Apple has had a major turnout from customers and is selling extremely well. iSuppli, known for their hardware price analyses, has determined that the cost to produce the iPhone is $265.83, leaving a profit margin of about 55 percent on the 8GB iPhone, which is $599. Stock in the company also rose 4 percent after this news was released.

These prices do not factor in any royalties or logistics, and it is unknown if network provider AT&T takes any profit on iPhone sales. With $333.17 to be gained over initial sale, it seems that any royalties may be easily paid with room to spare. This large profit from Apple could cause quite and uproar, but for stock holders, they are just hopeful it doesn't decrease sales, which is doubtful.

unless, in the bios, there is an option to change how much ram your onboard graphics uses, then as far as i know, you cant unfortunatly :(

i would recomend, buying a cheep seperate graphics card, only somthing megre, perhaps a 7300, or a X1300, that should do better :)

Nvidia 7800 series = ATi X1800 series
Nvidia 7900 series = ATi X1900 series
Nvidia 8500 series = ATi X2400 series
Nvidia 8600 series = ATi X2600 series
Nvidia 8800 series = ATi X2900 series

thats only aproxamatly, actual performance may vary, but thats roughly what they're suposed to be equivilant to

Two things to add :)

First is Eclipse - my mate is having exactly the same problem, and their saying that they are NEVER getting stock of those products again despite taking orders. He's now got to wait several days with a bust PC for the money to go into his account and then a few more days for new bits to arrive.

The other company to watch out for with this kind of shoddy system is Scan - I've not rumour-mongering here, they admitted it on another large forum in a sticky in their section!
