    I am curious, what people use these old machines for, I mean I loved the old games and all.
    I would like to know what others do with theirs.

    Old games, and as a serial terminal for my big UNIX server.

    My daughter (8 years old) loves playing old games. We have some old arcade games for Apple II (Pac-Man, Dig-Dug, etc,) as well as some actual "computer" games (The Black Cauldron, Math Rabbit.) She also plays games on my IBM PCjr. (the original Kings Quest, which was designed specifically for the PCjr.)

    Can you give more details about its use as a server terminal? I find that really interesting.

    I hear Apple ii's are good at acting as a number input terminal for a static energy discharge station ;)

    I just use a serial cable to my server, and the Modem.MGR terminal software to connect.

    An article on this use can be found here.
