Microeconomics

Suppose Dell is currently selling 250,000 laptops per month. A mgr at Dell argues, "The last 10,000 laptops we producted increased our revenue by $8.5 million. However, because we are making a substantial total profit of $25 million from producting 250,000 laptops, I think we are producting the optimal number of laptops." Briefly explain whether you agree with this mgrs reasoning.
