As you may notice, here at VAN we view the Internet like a daily treasure hunt. It seems if you spend some time really digging, you can always come up with another little nugget. Today we have located the text from a rather obscure article on the launch of the Lisa from Windfall magazine. From the February, 1983 issue, the article begins:
"LISA has arrived. And its the biggest breakthrough in microcomputing since the first hand-built Apple emerged from a California garage in 1976.
That pioneering machine was the blueprint from which a all the hundreds of different micros produced since have been based.
But now there's Lisa, so revolutionary a concept that it's no exaggeration to say that the future of personal computing has only just begun.
The result of the many millions of dollars and hundreds of man years (Reportedly 50$ Million, and 200 man years - RTK) that Apple has been devoting to research and development is a giant leap forward in making computers far more human."
ENTER LISA..Now the Future Can Begin!
