Are Lisa's really "rare"? Apple made tens of thousands of them, and they were well made and usally well cared for. Over the last 10 years, I have seen many working units sell on ebay for under $1000. With the membership of this group at only 125 members, there should be enough to go around, at least for less money than building one from scratch..

Also, what wrong with doing a FPGA version (something like the apple one clone or the C-one project)? If you guys don't have a proper floppy drive, use a USB keyboard, and are using a VESA display how would it be better clone than a FPGA version would be anyway?

I am not trying to be negitive, just asking the questions.
