I don't agree with this statement! A screen-modded Lisa has no less "historical" value. Lisa's running MacWorks or Xenix are still Lisa's, all the hardware is exactly the same. It's pretty impressive from a "historical" point of view that Lisa can run newwer OSes (just try running Windows95 on a 1983 PC/XT).

It would have been stupid for Apple not to offer the screen mod, and adapt the Mac's better square pixel design. Plus, with the great emulators available today, anyone can experience the LisaOS with out having a Lisa to run it on.

I agree that a Lisa1 will always be worth more, but a Lisa2 is a Lisa2, plain-and-simple.
How does the rest of group feel about this? Rick
