I am looking at starting an Apple collection - they are obviously cool and iconic products which is reason enough. From an investment perspective I wonder if members have any comments. Some limited research seems to indicate that products unopened retain their value best (as you would expect). It also seems that unopened items are more expensive to buy on Ebay than the most recent version (e.g. an ipod classic generation 5 with an asking price of 1000gbp) I guess there aren't many people who are not going to open the box! An Apple product is not like a painting or a stamp which you can enjoy by looking at it. To enjoy an Apple product you obviously have to open the box and plug it in which reduces its value dramatically. I was thinking of starting off by buying the shuffle range as it could then be sold off later as an entire set. I am tempted to buy from the UK Apple store, as a dated receipt could add value. Do members think this is worthwhile purely from an investing perspective? Thanks guys.
