How Much Is Your new iPad?

Everyone knows that new iPads are selling at $499, $599, and $699 for Wi-Fi only, and $629, $729, and $829 for Wi-Fi+4G version, for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB respectively at US. It is speculated in Malaysia the price of new iPad will be same like iPad2 before reduce price, therefore RM 1499, RM 1799, RM 2099 for Wi-Fi only, and RM 1899, RM 2199, and RM 2499 for Wi-Fi+4G version.

However do you know how much it cost to manufacture your new iPad? Is your money worth it to buy the 64GB version?

Btw, I am just going to call the new iPad as iPad 2012 since it is not officially called iPad3.

Here is the breakdown cost of iPad 2012 from IHS iSuppli:

From the table above, Apple (and the telcos/distributors) are earning 58% from cheapest iPad 2012 (16GB Wi-Fi only) to 102% from most expensive iPad 2012 (64GB Wi-Fi+4G). Wow!
No wonder Apple's stock price is keep on claiming up, even with various issues on their product (antennate-gate) and now heat-gate (over heating issue on iPad 2012).

I think not only I should not buy iPad 2012, I should also buy some Apple's share. :-)
