In this day and age, I don't think people should suffer through 141T spectrum analyzers or even a 8568- Spend your money an a nice USB unit instead. I think people learn more with old test equipment. I know someone who has a 1 GHz LeCroy scope, as well as a high end Agilent, but can't seem to measure the simplest of signals, that I could easily measure with a 50 year old scope. I heard about someone who could not use an analogue multimeter as it could not measure negative voltages. The above said, I don't entirely disagree with you either.
