Forget about iPods, for a moment. MacDailyNews reports that Apple sold a healthy 1.8 million Macs during the "holiday quarter" ending 2006 and of that number, about 1.1 million units were laptops. This apparently beat Apple's "already aggressive targets", with strong sales at the Apple store. Due to these strong sales Goldman Sachs estimates the fiscal 2007 per share earnings at $2.85, slightly higher than the "Street consensus" of $2.76.
Let's pause for a moment for a hearty fanboy squee at the news of Apple's further progress towards total world domination. And, oh yes, the iPod sold very nicely too.
