Apple CEO Tim Cook just showed an amazing slide at the launch event for the new iPad.

Apple sold 15.4 million iPads last quarter. That’s more than any PC maker’s TOTAL PC sales during the same quarter.

Other interesting stats: the iPad, iPhone, and iPod made up 76% of Apple’s revenue during that quarter, and Apple sold more than 172 million of these devices in total last year. By way of comparison, all PC makers combined shipped about 350 million PCs last year.
