I wanted to add how I got my non working lisa 2/5. I was going to garage sales and went to this odd one in downtown Omaha. it was in a fenced in lot with strange electronics. There in the middle was a FREE pile, and sitting there was a neglected apple lisa with no chips and containing everything but ram and a cpu card. I still have it and work on it when I have the time I got the button to at least light up. Still one of my favorite apples in my collection.
