A great brand, maybe, but how long can Apple maintain charging a premium?

I would be interested in the breakdown of the touchscreen/cover glass. How does the estimate $7.50 get split between the two items: 50/50, 80/20, or something else? Although, doing a little research, and this link seems to indicate (assuming this is what Apple used) to that the touchscreen/cover glass are an integral unit: http://www.corning.com/specialtymaterials/products_capabilities/iox/ioxvsdiscrete.aspx

Not just brand but integration and finish. Some poopoo that as not valuable but using and touching an Apple product is unique and worth the price IMHO.

Wow - that is very small. Apple does enjoy hefty margin because of great brand.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
