Hi Michael,
from what I have read on debian-devel, someone who want to buy a new
machine for Debian would ask about what the current or future need is,
thus allowing you to buy what would suite the project.  Now if you
already have a machine, then either someone would say, "yes, that is
good for XYZ" or they would say, "no, that is not what anyone needs."
