    According to the latest supply chain leaked intel, Apple doesn't have to eat much more in the way of costs associated with their newest iPad Air 2 compared to the older iPad Air. The latest report indicates that Apple only pays $1 USD more to have an iPad Air 2 built than it cost them to have the previous gen iPad Air crafted.

    Despite that, it looks like Apple's profit margin on iPads has dropped a bit more than that single dollar would suggest. Here's a quote with more detailed info,

    While Apple's profit margins may have shrunk a few percentage points, Apple is still dramatically higher than any and all profit margins any of their Android competition can muster.

    Those are incredibl margins for electronic devices. Unheard of.

    Kind of makes ya feel like they could either lower the price a bit OR better yet, make them here in the USA since we could really use the jobs.

    Oh well.
