That means 27% margin. Yet, since Apple gets parts much, much, much cheaper because it buys quantities in...
Apple had a trackball in the gamepad for their game console called the Pippin.

My mighty mouse stopped registering the scroll ball movement many times, but unlike you I haven't given up

I made the scratch below the click-wheel, not on the screen.
After two days of using it without a case and traveling with it, there are some very small scratches here and there, but nothing more that I would have...
