The Apple Lisa was a 'business machine' that few knew about.



For me the Apple 'Lisa' was a Fuji .... better than Macintosh.

While the graphical Apple interface was interesting (and significant), a version of Unix (Xenix) would run on the Lisa. As such it would run business basic and support 3 dumb terminals. So, for less than $15K a small business system (Open Systems application software) would run smoothly. Alternative at that time (IBM, DEC, etc) was over $35k.
