    Thanks for the story and the photos -- the Lisa was (and, apparently, still is!) a beautiful machine.

    Lisa is classic big iron / aluminum!

    Great project! Two of mine will probably never get rebuilt. 1 year is a fast Lisa project by my SLOW standards!

    :eek:

    could you run the photoshop test on that puppy and see what kind of times she gets?

    I doubt it, its running Lisa Office System(LisaOS) not a version of MacOS so there wont be a photoshop version out for it.

    I hope you were counting the original scarcasm with some uber-counter-scarcasm... Other than that... D'oh!

    I'll let you off.

    I loved school, well, it was damn funny. I remember once when I was about 14 I had red highlights put in my hair, and some kid (scrambling to find an insult) called me Kelly Osbourne... Fools.

    :) She's pretty slow. 5MHz 68000 and whatnot. My Mac Pro totally outruns the Lisa 2.

    I think it would be neat to see benchmarks compared to the 8mhz 6800 Macintosh 128k
