Hmm I think computers are both.  We wouldn't really have a  rescue list 
without the notion that computers are toys as well as tools.  I can 
think of only a few things more fun than rescuing an old machine and 
learning about it inside and out (it may not be that useful to me for 
what I do in life, but I don't care)  I have no use for my Crimson 
right now but I pay for the juice to keep it on because I love it plain 
and simple.  It's there for me to putter around with.  Some day I may 
actually need it who knows?
