Default What do I do with my Singer 99k?

I just got it back from the dealers. I had it gone through and it's ready to sew. But I have a very nice computerized machine that I've been using for 2 years. It didn't come with any extra feet. I bought bobbins, needles and a manual and don't know if it does anything but straight stitch. I was thinking about putting it in my closet. I don't even know why I bought it. I wanted something old (I don't know why) and now that I have it, should I use it instead of my new one? It has a case. Should I sell it?

No, keep it. You never know when you'll need it. Use it as a backup. IMHO

Sometimes when I have my computerized machine set up and need to sew blocks or some tear in an item I use my old machine, problem is, I have 5 old machines. I know I have to get rid of one, but which one since all are like new condition. I have:
-new Baby Lock
-Singer featherweight 221, like new
-Singer green 185J
-Singer bentwood case 15-91
-Singer 15-90 Probable will list this on CraigsList this summer
-White treadle from grandma 1930s
Plus I have a beautiful Singer treadle cabinet, without machine
My room runneth over
