I still have my second, an Apple ][+ I bought secondhand in 1984. If I
would have realized how much I would've missed my first (a Mattel
Aquarius) I would have kept it also.

I've kept everyone since then (even my old work PC, which is in use in my
guest bedroom).

You got me beat by a couple decades and several computer generations :)
