For many companies, not just retailers, holiday sales represent a make or break opportunity. Obviously, that’s not the case for Apple, but its partners are relying more than ever on the Cupertino, California-based Mac, iPod and iPhone maker to bolster their results.
DigiTimes reports that Apple notebook OEM Quanta Computer has reported best ever monthly revenues in November even though its volume fell by 100K units to 3.8 million. The company was able to achieve this feat because of a larger proportion of its orders came from Apple, whose notebooks, etc have higher selling prices than other vendors.
Recent months have seen Apple post strong sales figures in the quarter ending September 30, as well as capture the lion’s share retail desktop revenues in October and post good Black Friday results.
It’s beginning to look like Apple’s having yet another record holiday quarter.
