@B00tDisk

The high price of the Amiga is an indication of it's rarity, more than anything else.

From that, you can assume that the Apple Lisa is rarer still.

Recently an Apple 1 was sold for much more than that - that's because it's even rarer that a Lisa.

If I had the money to spare, I'd happily buy that Lisa - it's value can only go up.

There are collectors out there that have driven the price up. They buy it and put it in their collection. It ruins the market for the rest of us.
