Cool stuff!  We still have a few items from my many years in IT.  It’s just in different parts of the house.  I do think I still have all of our Newtons, enjoying an OMP, 130 and a couple of upgraded N2Ks.  I still have a Mac Classic that my wife used when she was working in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, many years ago, my old Mac IIci, and my original computer, an Epson 286.  The Epson doesn’t get used anymore, but I can’t justify getting rid of it since the whole kit (computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer) cost ~$3000 US back in the 90’s!
