Just for reason of information:

What would you give me for this little piece of memory?
It's in a good, working condition with a extra monitor and 2 Drives with those big coulored apples on them. This baby is vintage...

Thanks for replying...

If it came with all the manuals, floppies, keyboard, mouse, ect. and was in good to excellent condition, about $25.

Hmmm, kind of hard to be missing the keyboard on an Apple IIe... (it was one box including the keyboard - monitor was seperate)
The mouse did not really exist until 1984 (The Apple IIe came out around 1981 and never had a mouse even in later revisons)

Ah... That was my first computer.... :D
I was so used to text based that I did not like the mac when I first used it (everything was hidden behind icons :eek: ) - Many a paper was written on that box for my school classes...

Ok, am I showing my age? Well, at least I was 10 when I was given the IIe

Someone just paid $530 on a working Lisa on eBay. I suppose the Lisa's are worth more than the ][e, but still seems like a lot. All I can say is that if I had a working Lisa, I wouldn't want to part with it :D

The LISA was produced in smaller numbers, and killed off quick, if I remember correctly. The Apple II was produced in really high numbers, and there are still a lot around. That's why the LISA is worth more, especially if you can find a LISA 1 un-upgraded. Saw one go on eBay for $7000 :eek:

wow, I wish I had $7000 lying around to spend on a 20 year old computer :). I think the landfill should be oncovered to see if any of those Lisas still work :D

Well, it was decked out. It had been in a closet since 1985 or something. It came with all the original boxes, manuals & floppies .. even the sales receipt! It came with the printer & hard disk as well (5meg model I think.) Also it was the original Lisa 1, un-upgraded original ROM and the twin 'twiggy drives' not the Sony 3.5" drive.
I don't remember how many bids there were, but it was something like 75.

I just did a quick eBay check, and Lisas are going for $20~$100. That's cheap! :eek:

Well maybe the IIe never officially shipped with a mouse, but you could sure get one... Some apps took advantage of it or could be made to.
