    Perhaps the margins weren't that good ?

      Comparing their displays to other companies with similar offerings… I think they were doing okay.

      This seems like it would matter if Apple was struggling financially, but they're still wildly profitable.

        Think about it, the effort it takes to produce an iMac is quite similar to a standalone display (sourcing, actual production, transportation & other logistics etc) except it has lower margins.

        If you have limited capacity you like Apple does, you're better off focusing on products with higher margins.

          “Limited capacity”?

            They need to source materials, transport and get people to work on the actual production. The capacity to do that not unlimited.

            If you have two products but one brings in more profits for a similar effort, you have to decode. It's just a hunch btw.
