Kyle Conroy is going to have a lot of Apple customers experiencing buyer's remorse, because he's done some homework and figured out how much money one could make if they had invested in Apple stock instead of their fancy products.

Some of the results are utterly depressing, like that if you were to invest in $400 of stock rather than buy the original iPod in 2001 you'd have $11,914. Other results are more modest, like getting $87 for investing in $50 in Apple stock instead of that iPod Shuffle 2G. The one product line that is missing from the list is Apple's latest, the iPad.
