 Birth of the Lisa

"The Lisa was first envisioned as a brand new business computer to succeed the very popular Apple II, and it was to be designed by Steve Wozniak. The project was quickly turned over to a former HP, Ken Rothmuller, director as Wozniak drifted away from Apple. A marketting specification was completed and aproved in 1979, and the planned Lisa bore little semblance to the computer that was actually released. To be sold for no more than $2,000, the Lisa was to hae a green phosphorous CRT, 16 bit processor and a high capacity floppy drive. The project was to be ready for release in 1981."
