Buy Apple shares and turn iPad 2 into a Mac mini, MacBook Pro

How to turn an iPad 2 into a MacBook Pro

If you were to buy one share of Apple today you'd pay around $562 (or £357). That seems pretty steep, especially given that you could buy an iPad 2 for £329.

However, if analysts are right and Apple's stock is worth $1,000 in one year (£636) then within the next 12 months you could buy a Mac mini for £529, and have money to spare.

Alternatively how about forgoing a iPad 2 today and buying a top of the range New iPad with Wi-Fi for £659 with the extra cash from Apple shares.

You could buy two Apple shares for £714 and in a years time your £1,272 could buy you a 13in MacBook Pro at today's prices.

Of course investing in Apple shares is a gamble and you could just as easily lose your money.
