Apple celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Mac computer this week. USA Today’s Regina Lewis says the computer cost $2,500 in 1984. However, if you had invested in Apple stock that year instead, you now have $400,162.
Today you would have:
$22,960 if you bought Apple stock when the iPod was released
$2,187 if you bought stock when the iPhone was released
$1,093 if you bought stock when the iPad was released
