But  you're defining "spirit" and listing 
criteria by which a machine is  
appropriate or not.   A PS/2 with an 
80386 running Windows  3.1 is acceptable, 
whereas a Packard Bell with an 80386 
running  Windows 3.1 is not.    Yeah, you 
and I would cringe at a PB  being 
discussed, but maybe there's someone out 
there who really is  fond of their PB.

So as Terry ("Tezza") acknowledges, 
terms like  "landmark," "classic," 
"collectible" are subjective (but I 
don't think  "vintage" is subjective -- 
that term is usually set by age  alone).

This is why it's just easier to use a 
single criteria --  age -- and leave it 
at that.   Why is age acceptable  
everywhere else in collecting, but not 
here?      Otherwise, someone (the list 
owner?) has to pontificate over a list 
of  acceptable computers.  Good luck with
