But I never got rid of any of them, and there were always two or three in use at a time. The Mac II had steady use as a design workstation for close to 5 years (kept swapping out parts for faster and bigger ones), though at the end it was mainly a production machine.
My last G4 lasted 4 years; the older one 3. I endured the SE, on the other hand, for just about 2; it was a mistake. So was the Quadra 700, though I kept it going longer (the bookkeeper kept it in use). The 7500 was a good workhorse — I used it for 5 years, until I got the first G4.
But unlike you, there was no rhyme nor reason to what I bought or why. It was just pure dumb luck, good and bad.
I also had three laptops during that span: two Macs and 1 PC, a very elegant machine (bought about the time of Apple’s luggable Mac so-called laptop — maybe for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s lap!) But none of those were ever used for real work, mostly for road trips or presentation machines, so they don’t count.
