    Since Apple announced the pricing for the iPad, I've been wondering what the actual part cost per unit is. Well, according to BroadPoint AmTech analyst Brian Marshall, the low-end $499 version of the new tablet costs about $270 in materials and manufacturing.

    What's great for Apple is that the cost of goods will decrease with time and Apple (of course) can pick and choose wether to lower price or not. So, this could become even more of a money maker with time.
