Hi Michael, and welcome to LisaList2.

I wrote up a reply about this a few days ago here: https://lisalist2.com/index.php/topic,118.msg1302.html#msg1302

It seems pretty reasonable.


Hope it helps.

I've got my eye on it... I need a 2/10 for a project I'll eventually be working on. Need to make sure it works fine on the 2/5 and 2/10 I/O boards.

The Lisa worked fine for years, was rarely turned on.  A few years ago it started up but the hard drive failed to boot and there was an error code on the screen.  I shut her off and did not try again until a few weeks ago.  Now nothing on start up.  No smells or burning at all.

I will take more pictures and post shortly

Fair price?  Suggestions

You asked for comments, here is mine:

I don't think 3 grand is a fair price for a non-running system.  I know it ran when it was parked, but one can only assume the worst if it not working now.  If you really need to get that kind of money, my suggestion is get her working ( folks here will be glad help you with this ) or part her out.   :'(

"I don't think 3 grand is a fair price for a non-running system"  Fair enough, then what is it worth?

That's great.  If this system is worth that much, then I must have a solid 6 figures worth of Lisa stuff ... who knew!   ;)

Heh, you've not been watching the news. The USG+The Fed nearly "printed" as many dollars in 2020 as were in existence. "Inflation is coming, inflation is coming."

Congrats on the sale Michael. Hopefully you can share some stories of your personal/professional experiences with the Lisa. :)
