Apple CFO: 'We May Not Be Able to Meet Demand on the MacBook Pro'

by , 5:30 PM EST, January 18th, 2006

During Wednesday's financial conference call with analysts, Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer revealed that his company is "hopeful we can meet the demand on the [Intel] iMac," but "given the very strong response that we saw, we may not be able to meet the demand on the MacBook Pro."

Mr. Oppenheimer's comments were delivered in response to a question from Rob Stempl of Credit Suisse First Boston. In a follow-up from Morgan Stanley's Rebecca Runkle, she asked for specifics, and the CFO replied: "We received reports from a number of customers from different markets that they were postponing purchases pending Macworld's announcement. However, our results last week that we saw in the reaction last week is extraordinary and that gives us tremendous optimism about the customer reaction on the Intel-based Macintosh.

"And so we obviously factored in that kind of thinking into our guidance," he added.
