iSuppli Posts Teardown of 2009 Mac minis

iSuppli today posted their teardown and estimated cost of the 2009 Mac minis. According to the company, "the latest Mac mini desktop computer demonstrates once again that Apple knows how to make computers better, smaller, and more attractive. Such an achievement, however, comes at a premium and bears higher component costs due to the Mac mini's use of parts designed for mobile computers."

iSuppli claims the new entry-level $599 Mac mini carries a bill-of-materials of $376.20, which increases to $387.14 when manufacturing costs are added. This basically means that Apple is making about $212 on the entry-level Mac mini before other factors (see below).

Here's the complete iSuppli teardown of 2009 Mac mini:

It should be noted that the total materials and manufacturing costs reported in iSuppli's teardown analysis of the new Mac mini mirror only the expenses for direct materials, manufacturing and basic tests. Not included in this analysis are costs above and beyond the material manufacturing of the core device itself - i.e., the cost of intellectual property, royalties and licensing fees - as well as those expenses not already included into the per component price, software, software loading and test, shipping, logistics marketing and other channel costs.
