When you use a "business term" that doesn't exist in any other world but yours .... nobody has any idea what you're saying. "net expense"?

Here's what I was responding to:

"How many HP, Acer, Lenovo etc. stores are there? AFAIK .... none .. zero ... nada.
Apple is one of the few computer/tech companies that are dedicated to selling their own brand only via a brick and mortar type operation. Do you not see an expense factor here that the rest of the industry largely avoids by just wholesaling their product to many retailers?"


Your claim seems to be that Apple has an "expense factor" that reduces their take compared to other companies that do not have stores, but instead wholesale their products to retailers .

I pointed out that the store operations are profitable. So far from being an "expense factor", the stores instead provide a profit. The stores do not represent an extra expense, they represent extra profit.

If you still don't understand, then so be it. If you want to claim victory and post more proof that this simple point eludes you, go ahead.

What you fail to understand is that ALL EXPENSES have to be shared by all items in the store.
Just because the store, as a whole, turns a profit does not dictate that new items that come into the store should be sold at a lesser profit margin just because Apple doesn't need the $$$. Would you turn down a raise for doing more work .... just because you don't need the money?

In any business model I ever studied you don't spend resources to develop new products so you can give them away .... how silly.

I have no idea of what your comment has to do with this conversation. Bye.
