Submission + - Apple iPad costs $260 to make (itpro.co.uk)

nk497 writes: The Apple iPad costs $260 in parts and manufacturing, with over 40 per cent of that spent on the display alone, according to a teardown by iSuppli. The company said the focus on the user interface is a complete reversal to how most computing products are made, as they tend to be "motherboard-centric." The company said the iPad "represents a radical departure in electronic design compared to conventional products."
