I disagree. I enjoy repairing, investigating and running 
classic computers, and that has to be a good reason for
owning them. It's no more (or less) pointless than many
other hobbies.

And I specifically do not want any part of my collection even to 
be offered to a museum

That is what a will is for (and in my case, not having any close 
family it's pretty much essential). You name somebody (having
given them warning of what to expect) who will know what to
do with the machines, etc, and will appreciate them.

And yes, I have made a will.
