Only Google will know. Given that nobody is supposed to give away the amount of monthly income from AdSense, nobody is supposed to find out either.

"nobody is supposed to give away the amount of monthly income from AdSense"

wrong:

Ditto comment above – they made that change a year or so ago. I always thought it was kinda odd when you couldn't even disclose that since when you went to the bank to deposit your check, it said "Google" on it and the bank teller would see it ... so technically you were violating the TOS that was in effect back then! ;-)

Care to give us a range on what "N" is Philipp- I didn't get one, so N-alek < N-philipp

Yes, they changed the clause sometime back and that's the reason we get to see screenshots of Google cheques at so many places now.

For what it's worth, last month I earned $15.50 from AdSense and I didn't get a brochure!

Scanning the book I saw a couple of basic tips that you see on the official AdSense blog too. Discussion of ad formats, borders vs no borders, colors that integrate into the website etc...
I have to give this a deeper look to see if there's anything new...

Well, I generally earn $1000+ per month and didn't get one either :-)

I'm in the UK and received one of these brochures earlier this year. It doesn't contain anything that's not on the net already.
