Which is Better: Buying Apple Products, or Buying Apple Stock?

That Apple PowerBook G4 1.0 you’ve paid $2999 back in 2002 is now collecting dust somewhere. If you had spend the same amount on Apple stock at that time, it would now be worth $94334.40. As you go farther in the past, this trade off becomes more and more lucrative, but amazingly enough, Apple’s stock has been doing so well that it works even for newer Apple products. For example, Apple MacBook Pro “Core Duo” 2.0 15″ cost $2499 back in 2006; for that amount of money you could have bought Apple stock which would today be worth $10005.98.
