    For anyone interested in the guts of old Apple products, check out this video from EEVBlog. This guy is pretty enthusiastic about circuit boards! He has also done teardowns of other electronics from the same era, including a huge ancient hard drive that is bigger than a watermelon.

    Yeah the problem is those machines are irreplaceable, and Dave doesn’t seem to care :(
    I was pissed enough to see an Amiga A500 stripped to it’s guts, but how many Lisas are there?

    Well I actually came here to post that my mate found a Lisa in his shed.
    It has not been powered yet, the battery has leaked over the board and that still has to be cleaned up at least.
    Cheers, Art.

    I don’t know in that particular case, but he does pull things apart in a manner that isn’t consistent with someone who has a desire to save the thing.

    The worst for me to watch was a vintage Tektronix CRT scope with built in
    functionality to draw a simulated seven segment clock display with vector graphics.

    I’m Australian too, but the above is pretty much the reason I wouldn’t join his forums or subscribe on YouTube.
