Listing Detail Tabs

I have to make room in my computer shack and, as I’ve got another working Lisa 2, I’ve reluctantly decided to part with this historical machine.

• The computer boots up without error, and will load software from a floppy disk
• The keyboard has been restored (new pads installed) so all keys work
• The keyboard contains the pull-out guides, which are often absent from many used Lisa keyboards (see photos)
• There is no damage to the I/O board from battery leakage, unlike many old Lisa2s (see photo)
• I’ll provide BLU (Basic Lisa Utility) on a floppy disk and a copy of MacWorks 3.0 (the Macworks 3 looks a little strange as the Lisa has not had the video modification required to display this properly).

Full disclosure: The case and keyboard case (but not the keys) were retrobrited in 2010. The machine is still slightly yellowed. The photos were taken under natural light, but in some (not all) of the photos the camera tends to underplay the yellow somewhat especially with the keyboard case. In some of the photos it looks white, but it is more a light yellow/beige colour, as is most of the computer case.

There is a faint mark on the top panel (see photo). The mouse is not a genuine Lisa mouse, but is a compatible one from an early Macintosh. On rare occasions, the mouse needs to be pushed firmly into its connector to work. Once the Lisa recognizes it though, it seems to be fine.

As those of you reading this will know, aged electronics fail from time to time. While the unit is certainly working right now (as you’ll be able to see on pickup or delivery) and I have no reason to think it won’t continue to do so, it comes with no guarantees.

These machines are very heavy, precise and delicate. Given that, I’m not going to pack it and send via a courier. I know this will disappoint some and restrict the market somewhat. There is scope to negotiate a personal delivery (by me!) if costs are covered.
