When I buy used, I prefer to get something as far as possible from "the same device anyway". I tend to gravitate to stuff that hasn't been manufactured in a generation or more…
@publius Generations-old devices aren't even that different, except when a company has just launched a major design change.
I think you may have mistaken what I meant by "generation". LaserDisc player, Accutron watch, Trimline telephone ― I wasn't even born when some of these things were made, not to speak of kids graduating from high school this year.
@publius Ahh, the good old days, when game systems had coprocessor space in their ROM carts.
