Lives for gear

I then upgraded to a Mackie DL1608 since I already had an iPad, and now I own that, and have sold off the rest - sub, giant snake, etc. All were bought used except for the original 1202, which was also my recording mixer at the time.
What's the point or particular advantage of getting a used low-cost digital mixer, instead of just getting a new/modern low-cost digital mixer...? An expensive mixer I understand, but a secondhand low-cost mixer today?
