This is not your usual Lisa ProFile. This was a ProFile sent back and forth between. Early Apple dealers and Apple itself. As you can see on the top cover and inside.
There are labels you do not find on any other ProFile out there. And inside, on the hard disk drive.Also historic is the hard disk itself. This is a Seagate ST-506, often called.
"The daddy of the modern hard drive". While in the 60-70s a hard drive looked more like. One or two refrigerators, the first hard drive of 5.25 size. Was this model ST-506 from Seagate.It holds an incredible ; 5MB! The device for sale here has thus 3 historic characteristics. The ProFile is Apple's very first hard disk. The Apple III and then the Lisa. The ST-506 hard disk is the first model of modern hard disks. A revolution in its days. Between Apple dealers and Apple itself. For the Apple collector looking for something pretty unique.
Of note: the red light comes on when powered on but only for a few moments. (and does that repeatedly when powered on again). Thus the power supply does work but.
The disk doesn't seem to be working. I also don't know what is still on the disk. If you can get it to work again.
I would appreciate knowing what was on it - should be fun. The ProFile device (no computers or other devices). Although I do my best to be complete in describing the state of the items please also check the high resolution pictures for your personal detailed assessment. They are part of the description and high resolution so you can amplify them to see details. In very good condition for being almost 40 years old.
Minor wear overall, some minor cracks, and the usual discoloration. It has all 6 feet but most are a bit sticky as often happens; I put transparent tape on them for transport. At least you are thus guaranteed that these are the original feet. Please see pictures to complete your assessment. As usual I pack items very well so that they arrive at your place as they leave my place.
