I have several old computers still on my account page which I would like to remove, most of which don't even exist any more, but I can't delete them because there is no 'Delete Computer' button on their pages.
The biggest threat to public safety and security is not terrorism, it is Government abuse of authority.

As far as I am aware, this is true for most projects. The computers remain with a number even if the account is deleted though they will of course no longer be associated with any account.

For this project, the information about the computer that created a model may be of interest to the researchers at a later date, so once they've run a model, they stay.

Also, in the past week or so, the server software was updated to the latest version, and some things are now very different.
