actual image size: 32cm x 25cm


Apple's Lisa was the first computer to use a Graphical User Interface (GUI). Incorporating the powerful Motorola 68000 procesor, and a mouse and pull-down menus, Lisa was intended by Apple's founder, Steve Jobs, to set the technological standard and become the market leader in personal computers. Unfortunately, at just under $10,000 when launched in 1983, the price was too high for most potential buyers, but the innovations of the Lisa led directly to Apple's succesful Macintosh. Shown with ProFile 5Mb hard disk unit.
