If there\'s any credit given to that computer, it doesn\'t allow you to delete it.

First, I tried deleting the obsolete entry of a second (older) computer; and, as you\'ve pointed out here, it apparently can\'t be done. However, I\'m also unable to merge the two computers: When I click on the \"Merge\" function for the obsolete entry, the subsequent page fails to show any computers with which to merge!

What I did do, should it make the slightest difference, was change the obsolete listing from \"Home\" to \"--\" in hopes the system will cater to the machine listed as \"Home.\" That\'s probably silly, but I couldn\'t think of what else to do.

Any help you can render regarding this scenario will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The requirement for merging is that the computer descriptions have to be the same.
These are derived from the code in the processor chip.
I think that the original intention was that identical desciptions meant that the two, or more, computers listed were the same physical computer.

Thank you, Les, for your information! Another thing which bothers me is that, in spite of the fact my obsolete computer entry shows zero credits, I still can\'t get rid of the damned thing. Oh, well: This is, hopefully, nothing for me to worry about further.

It doesn\'t have to have credits, just to have a model allocated to it. Which it does.
