I find no reason why we shouldn't be able to remove old inactive computers from the list.
Could you please make that option available for us?

Umm... you can already do this. You just need to make sure that all tasks for the computer you want to remove have been validated and removed from the computer.

Computers are never removed from the database, however they fade from visibility 30 days after they are last active.

No, you can delete computers. They must simply have no tasks assigned to them. Once there is no tasks assigned to them, you go into the details page of that particular computer and at the bottom will be a "Delete this computer" link next to the Merge link.
