All choices are approximately valued at US$600 right now.

Please feel free to tell us why you would rather own the one instead of the other three. :)

I would like to own - none of the above.
Apple stock? I don't support a company who tells what is right and wrong.
iPad 2 : old news - devaluated
Gold: Neh - too small misplacing and losing it.
USD ? Not worth enough now.

Why the interest and what is the intake you expect?
I’m a dog shaped ashtray
I’m a shrugging moustache wearing a speedo tuxedo
I’m a movie with no plot, written in the back seat of a piss powered taxi
I’m an imperial armpit, sweating Chianti
I’m a toilet with no seat, flushing tradition down
I'm socialist lingerie
I'm diplomatic techno
I'm gay pastry and racist cappuccino
I’m an army on holiday in a guillotine museum
I’m a painting made of hair, on a nudist beach, eating McDonald's
I’m a novel far too long
I’m a sentimental song
I’m a yellow tooth waltzing with wrap around shades on

Who am I?
I am Europe

The iPad would be most useful, most fun, and I'd make the most return on the investment.

Give me the gold for diversification.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

Gold has no dividend/interest.

USD? Ever heard of long termed CDs? Having it now and loving it.

Get ready for a huge bounce of both USD and JPY as the SHTF.

The "huge bounce" in the USD has been going on since the end of QE2 at the end of June 2011. Since the end of QE2 the USD has moved up from 73 to 83 on the USD Index. That's a sweet gain of around 13.5% in just under a year.

How high can the USD move? Probably around the 88 level on the USD Index. Enormous resistance at the 88 level. Expect another 6% rally in USD before it turns around and resumes the long term down trend.

BTW, once QE3 arrives, all bets are off and the USD will immediately start its LT down trend.

QE3 will arrive even quicker as the Euro SHTF.

Unfortunately you may be right. There are still not enough hawks on that 12 member board.

The only thing that can prevent another QE is for US GDP to grow anemically.
