Some interesting perspectives and definitely agree with the below as so much about cycling is about emotion and pride of ownership definitely has a part to play (and will vary from person to person).
There is no doubt that it's one of the most magical and evocative names in cycling though.
I'm less convinced by the 'Colnagos are suitable for beginner collectors' though! Collectors or not, we'd all like to think that we have the best bikes/taste so I'm particularly intrigued by the views that other brands are 'better', particularly in light of jonnyboy666's comments - any more detail on what makes them superior? Could you absolutely tell the difference in a blind test? I've been fortunate to own quite a few nice bikes and, to a point, if they fit then there isn't to my mind much to choose between them apart from the aforementioned pride of ownership (although granted I'm probably too unsophisticated to tell the difference!).
