COMPLETE APPLE LISA 1 COMPUTER SYSTEM -RESTORED, WORKS!
From the description:
"This system is an excellent example of Apple Computer's Second Rarest Computer, next to the original Apple-1 (1976).
Only 20 to 30 Lisa 1 computers are known to exist in the world today. The Lisa was a landmark in computing history,
being the first personal computer available with a mouse & GUI (Graphical User Interface). The release of this machine
and the Lisa Office System to the public pre-dates Microsoft Windows 1.0 by almost 3 years!
The Apple Lisa was the programming platform for the Macintosh, as they both use a Motorola 68000 CPU.
The Lisa has 1mb RAM and a 5MB Hard Drive vs. 128k of RAM in the Macintosh.
Mac OS 1.0 and most of the early Mac 128k programs were actually written with a Lisa.
Apple offered Basic Plus, Pascal, and Cobol as programming environments for the lisa.
This is a buy-it-now listing, meaning there are no bidders or bidding process.
Don't miss your chance to own a Lisa 1!
This Lisa turns on and passes all hardware tests. She boots up to Office System 1.0 (installed on the 5 MB ProFile Hard Drive).
A Lisa screen CRT/screen is bright and crisp with no burn-in. The 2 Twiggy drives are in 100% fully working condition!!!
Both Twiggy drives have been fully tested for both read & write capabilities. OS 1.0 installed from original Twiggy disks (not included).
A LISA 1 IS EXTREMELY RARE BECAUSE:
*It did not ship until July 1983, and was discontinued in January 1984 (6 months)
*Its original cost in 1983 was $10,000 US (approx. $21,000 US in 2008 dollars) making it a hard sell to businesses
*Apple offered all Lisa 1 owners a FREE upgrade to a Lisa 2 in 1984. Almost everybody went for this upgrade
*Apple took back all Lisa 1 specific parts back from authorized service centers and had them destroyed/disposed of
INCLUDED IN THIS AUCTION:

This Lisa 1 was never upgraded to a Lisa 2! It has been carefully cared for all of its life. Plastics have slight even yellowing due to
age and exposure to light. Absolutely no chips, cracks, dents, CRT screen burn-in, or any other damage can be found.
2 light scratches and uneven yellowing (due to ProFile drive sitting on top. Mouse is more yellowed than other items, some wear (smooth spot) on mouse button.
