True, but consider: if it's sitting in the back of the warehouse, it
isn't making any money.

At the company I work for, space is constrained.  Nothing is kept on
the theory it will accumulate value later -- in fact, for anything
made recently, the opposite is true.  Laptops and desktops, in
particular, need to either go out quickly or be scrapped.

(note: we only rarely get 'collectible'-class items, and I try to
flag those.  No minicomputers or mainframes :-) )
