  1. According to Digitimes, Pegatron has claimed a major victory by earning new business building Mac desktops. The specific models are not clear yet, nor has a definite date been given for production. This represents a much-needed win for the former Asus manufacturing arm, however, as the company’s revenue has continually dropped over 2010.

    I heard Apple was dropping the Mac line to focus more on Phones, iPods and iPads. Any chance somebody can confirm that?

    Not likely. Mac people are notoriously loyal and resistant to OEM solutions.
    It's a given that the Apple profits are in the other product lines however.

    They (Apple) aren't dropping computers.

    This contract is just for a company to build Macs for Apple to sell, its not a 3rd party vendor. Pegatron already builds (some? all?) iPhone 4s.

    This is also doesn't appear to be entirely confirmed yet (per digitimes's own article which wasn't linked). Macrumors.com is silent on it so far...

    Apple still makes plenty of income off their various comptuers. Take a look at their balance sheets.
