Behind the numbers (Quote from Mac Observer | Credit Card Calculator from Bankrate):

"While Apple’s $3,499 AR/VR headset isn’t for everyone, the sales numbers of the Vision Pro are impressive. In fact, the product set the sales chart on fire in the first couple of days, as the company nearly sold 180,000 units in pre-order sales, selling like (very expensive) hotcakes.

While we patiently wait for Apple to reveal the actual sales figure of the Vision Pro, if and when they actually do it, a prediction report from Statista suggests the company could ship around 350,000 units in the first year of the launch, reaching almost 1.5 million in year two."
