Here is the interesting part of all this we are now getting into a
collection of people who are starting to realize that computer are reaching
20 years old (and older of course) and that magic number is either the
classic or antique age for collectables. They think that suddenly these
computers have a monetary value that will increase with age. I don't know
if they're right or wrong but I know that I want various computers because
I worked with them or 'lusted' after them as grew up with computers. My
view of my collection is that I can still use them and appreciate them.
I still haven't figured out why I will tolerate an XT running DOS loading
Word Perfect yet I get ticked off waiting for my laptop to load a doc
with Microsoft Word (OK so the XT is faster :-).
