Apple sells very few computers... just 7.6% of the market right now, but they are still VERY profitable.

You can sell a lot at very low margins or you can sell just a few at huge margins. Personally, I prefer to stick with the low-margins volume guys, its more consumer friendly IMO. It looks like Honda is aiming for a 7.6% cut w/ 30% "Honda Tax" on each to compensate for lower sales.
