    Here's the dealio....
    I'm about to list what I thought were "Mac XLs" on Ebay, but as I am reading up more about them, I am finding that at least one may be an original Lisa, albeit upgraded.

    First "Lisa" System:

    "Serial No B08B83240322"
    "Applenet No 00102324"
    "Manufactured 83243"

    "Model No A6SB100"
    "Memory Option A6SB108"

    The screen is warbly and I get error code 82, although the online repair guide I found says nothing about this error code. Anyone have ideas? There is an external profile drive that I'm trying to locate.

    Second Lisa System


    "Serial No A3325039"
    "Applenet No 00107609"
    "Manufactured 3325"

    "Model No A6S0200"
    "Memory Option A6S0204"

    It boots to MacWorks (I believe, since it looks like Mac OS) but since the mouse connector seems like just a female 9-Pin Serial, its different than the other mouse with the "squeeze connector" that I have for the first system.

    Identification Help is appreciated guys, thanks a ton!


    Pictures below are for the "First System" next post is the second.

    I don't know how the serial #s worked but the very first Lisa's had Twiggy drives, which used 5 1/4" floppies. The ones in the picture have 3 1/2" drives. Lisa's were re-marketed as Mac XL s by Jan 85, so it looks like at least the first one was pre-Mac.

    XLs

    Yup, those're XL's. Otherwise known as Lisas with a Mac OS emulator and a 400k 3.5" floppy. The Manufacturing date is given as 1983. I can't remember how to decipher the other three digits though, I can never remember if it's YY/DD/Mo or YY/Q/Batch. *shrug* Either way, 1983 puts it in as "the first Mac", a dubious honor for that particular machine.

    Hey guys, sorry for the late response. Guess I had forgotten about these posts... I actually never got much identification help, and the error code 82 turned out to be a hard drive problem or something....

    I sold them and shipped them to a guy from Austria who has fixed them both.

    iMpathetic-DID NOT MEAN TO SHOUT-I USED A POST FROM LOWEND MAC---
    TO DETERMINE THE DATE-MY LISA IS apple lisa 2/10 xL-serial number A3062094
    model number A6s0200
    THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH-
    A=USA
    3=1983
    062=WEEK OF YEAR
    094=94th computer mfg
    ANY COMMENTS ON HOW RIGHT OR WRONG I AM IS WELCOMED
    (lowendmac has not responded to the question)

    (lowendmac post)
    2.8.12 - How can I determine when or where my Mac was made?
    Macintosh serial numbers have a built-in date coding that can tell you the week and year in which your Mac was made, as well as the factory in most cases.
    The first digit in the serial number is the last digit of the year of manufacture. To determine this with certainty will require a bit of common sense (i.e., a Power Mac whose serial number starts with 6 probably wasn't made in 1986).
    The next two digits are the week of the year, which ought to be reasonably self-explanatory.
    The serial number begins with a letter or two in most cases, and this is a factory code. Below is a list of all the factory codes I'm currently aware of; if you can add to or correct this list, e-mail me.

    * F: Fremont, CA, USA
    * CK: Cork, Ireland
    * SG, E: Singapore
    * XA, XB: Sacramento, CA, USA
    * FC: Fountain, CO, USA (PowerBooks only)
    * PK, SI: Mexico
    * LT, SR: Taiwan
    * G, A: USA
    * MI, SK, M: Malaysia

    Seems unlikely, given there tend to be 52 weeks in a year... maybe it's in octal. ;-)

    Date coding

    The three digits is for the day of the year (i.e. Jan 1 would be '001', Jan 31 would be '031') not week.

    Hope that helps.

    I sold about a dozen LISA's when working for a independent Apple reseller 1982-1985.
