I guess I thought it was obvious since a Lisa 2 (not 2/5 or 2/10) has no HD, 512K RAM and is useless without MacWorks. Mac XLs have an internal HD as well as the mod kit which shows up at powerup.

Even the 'plain' 2/5 can't run the full suite of OS 7/7 because some of the apps require 1mb. LisaWrite is the main protagonist here I think. The bumf I've got is for the Lisa 1, but it says "Note that one or more of the seven applications in the Lisa Office System (all listed) - require 1 mb of RAM and a hard-disk drive." The bumf also doesn't say that if you use the Profile to create a 2/5 you can't plug the printer in without getting another parallel board! Anyone got a spare parallel board?

Ho yus - that's why I'm not obsessed with mine at all :o)) Out of all 230-odd machines in the museum Lisa is the one I've spent most time on. I just *love* the shutdown sequence - how elegant is that? I spent ages looking for a shutdown option before giving up and RTFM - "hit the power button"

Both Rob Bedaux's repository and the MotherShip carry the workshop software so they've probably got the docs as well:

Also check the Lisa resources at Sellam's Vintage Computer Festival site, who's URL escapes me for the moment....
