FORTUNE — In his note to clients Thursday, ISI’s Brian Marshall highlighted two “nuggets” from the 88-page Form 10-K that Apple released late Wednesday:

  • Apple’s $11 billion in projected capital expenditures for fiscal 2014. That, he notes, is a double-digit increase from a company that was already “the single largest CapEx spender” in Marshall’s “Big 7 Hyperscale group” — Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN), EBay (EBAY), Facebook (FB) and Yahoo (YHOO.) SeeĀ $11 billion for plants, equipment and a spaceship.
  • Apple’s “off-the-charts” revenue-per-head metric compared with the other IT and networking companies he covers. See attached chart.

“The scale the company is executing on,” he writes, “is nothing less than astonishing.”

For what it’s worth, Apple’s $2.13 million per full-time-equivalent employee in fiscal 2013 is actually a tad less than the $2.15 million it produced in 2012.
