Description
Apple LISA-1, 1983
Serial no.: B08B931950122, Applenet no. 00102755, Manufactured: 83195. (This is Lisa No. 2755, manufactured on 14 July 1983). The "Apple Lisa-1" was the first commercially successful personal computer with graphical mouse-controlled User-Interface (GUI). In 1973 Xerox developed the first prototype of a GUI-based system. The Xerox systems never made it beyond the prototype / experimental stage and were not publicly marketed. A legendary visit by Steve Jobs to Xerox in Palo Alto sowed the first seeds of the Apple "Lisa" design. After several years of delay, Apple released "Lisa" in January 1983. "Lisa" was revolutionary but also very expensive. In "Lisa", Apple developed techniques such as overlapping windows, pull-down menus, drag and drop and the recycle bin that are still in use today. "Lisa" was soon replaced by the Apple Macintosh released in 1984, however the concept of "Lisa" lives on in computers to this day. Unfortunately the Twiggy drives that had been specially designed for "Lisa" proved to be very unreliable, and a second version (Lisa-2), with a modified front panel and floppy disk drive, was quickly introduced. Apple offered all "Lisa-1" owners a free upgrade to a Lisa-2; the front-panel and the Twiggy drives, however, had to be returned to Apple where they were destroyed. For this reason a complete "Lisa-1" - like this offered one - is extremely rare. It is estimated that only about 30 to 100 Lisa-1 machines are still in existence today. This "Lisa-1" comes in top shape, both visually and technically. It is fully functional except for one of the Twiggy drives. "Lisa" boots from the external 5 MB (Megabyte) Apple Profile hard disk into LOS 1.0 (Lisa Office System 1.0 - the first commercial, graphical operating system). Included are the "Lisa-1" mouse, the corresponding external hard drive (model no. A9M1005, serial no. 145361), the Apple parallel interface, the keyboard, the Apple dot matrix printer and Twiggy (or in Apple terminology "File Ware") diskettes with following programs and German manuals: LisaDraw, LisaCalc, LisaList, LisaWrite, LisaGraph und 7 further diskettes. The "Lisa-1" and external Apple Profile hard disk run on EURO 220 volts, but can be changed with little effort to US 110 volts. - A giant rarity from the beginning of personal computer history, especially in this extensive configuration.

Apple LISA-1, 1983
Serien-Nr. B08B931950122, Applenet-Nr. 00102755, Manufactured: 83195. (Dies ist Lisa Nr. 2755, hergestellt am 14. Juli 1983). Der "Apple Lisa-1" war der erste kommerziell erfolgreiche Personal Computer mit graphischer bzw. mausgesteuerter Benutzeroberfläche (GUI). Im Jahr 1973 gab es den ersten Prototypen eines graphischen User-Interfaces von Xerox. Die Xerox-Systeme kamen über das Versuchsstadium bzw. den Status eines Prototyps nie wirklich hinaus und wurden nicht öffentlich vermarktet. Ein legendärer Besuch von Steve Jobs bei Xerox in Palo Alto ließ die Idee des "Lisa" entstehen. Nach vielen Verzögerungen kam der "Lisa" endlich im Januar 1983 auf den Markt und war revolutionär, allerdings auch sehr teuer. Apple entwickelte für den "Lisa" noch heute verwendete Techniken wie überlappende Fenster, Pull-down-Menüs, Drag and Drop und den Papierkorb. Leider erwiesen sich die speziell für den "Lisa" entwickelten Twiggy-Drive-Laufwerke als sehr unzuverlässig - die Version 2 mit geändertem Frontpanel und Diskettenlaufwerk (Lisa-2) wurde schnell auf den Markt gebracht. Der "Lisa" wurde 1984 vom Apple Macintosh abgelöst - das Konzept des Apple "Lisa" lebt seitdem in jedem modernen Rechner weiter. Apple bot allen "Lisa-1"-Besitzern ein kostenloses Upgrade auf den Lisa-2 an - dazu mußten das Frontpanel und die Twiggy-Drive-Laufwerke an Apple zurückgesendet werden, wo diese vernichtet wurden. Aus diesem Grund ist ein vollständiger "Lisa-1" - wie hier angeboten - äußerst selten. Man schätzt, daß ca. 30 bis 100 "Lisa-1" noch weltweit existieren könnten. Der hier angebotene "Lisa-1" befindet sich in einem einzigartigen Bestzustand, sowohl optisch als auch technisch: Er ist voll funktionstüchtig, außer eines der beiden Twiggy-Laufwerke. Der "Lisa" bootet von der externen 5-Megabyte(!)-Apple-Profile-Festplatte in LOS 1.0 (Lisa Office System 1.0) - das erste kommerzielle graphische Betriebssystem. Mitgeliefert werden: die "Lisa-1"-Maus, die dazugehörige externe Festplatte Apple Profile (Model No. A9M1005, Serial No. 145361), Apple Parallel Interface, Tastatur, Apple-Nadeldrucker und folgende Twiggy- bzw. im Apple-Jargon auch "File Ware" genannte Disketten mit den dazugehörenden Handbüchern in deutscher Sprache: LisaDraw, LisaCalc, LisaList, LisaWrite, LisaGraph und 7 weiteren Disketten. Der "Lisa-1" und die externen Geräte laufen auf EURO 220 Volt (kann auf US 110 Volt umgestellt werden). - In dieser Komplexität eine Riesen-Rarität aus den Anfängen der Geschichte des Personal Computers!
