The Apple Lisa is one of those iconic Apple products. First introduced in January 1983 as Apple Lisa 1 with the big floppy disks as software carriers. The Apple Lisa brought the graphical user interface.
1984 the Apple Lisa 2 was released with as main difference the use of the smaller diskette drive. It kept the same concept of graphical user interface. Which was then also the basis for the Macintosh released later that same year 1984. If you see how we are all still using basically the same interface to access our desktop computers today.More than 30 years after the introduction of the Lisa 1. It is needless to say that the Lisa 1 was a truly revolutionary product. That changed the course of history. HERE'S WHY THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL OFFER. SEE ALSO THE WEALTH OF PICTURES! The rare Apple Lisa 1 mouse. The first commercially available "mouse" for use with computers. A truly revolutionary product in those days. Thus this is one of the first 10,000 "mouse devices" produced ever in history. The Apple Lisa 1 keyboard. Complete with all keys and all feet at the bottom. Manufactured in August 1983, serial number #25842. (the leading 1 does not count - see picture). Apple Lisa 1 original magazine. "Think of it as a Maserati for your mind", from 1983.

Another Apple Lisa 1 original newspaper advertisement. "A seminar for businesspeople who demand quick results", from 1983. Extremely rare find: the 4 keyboard fold-outs below the keyboard. These were used to record notes "LisaNotes" and to have instructions close at hand. (closer than the under the keyboard is not possible ;). No writings on them - still as released in the early days.
Note the indications for the floppy disks, the big size floppy disks from the Apple Lisa 1. And not from the Apple Lisa 2.The very rare Lisa "Apple" pin. Rare find, especially since the Lisa letters are written in golden color. Thus not the silver version as you mostly see!
