Named after Steve Jobs’ daughter, Lisa, this was one of the final models released before the introduction of Macintosh in 1984. Aimed at corporations, the computer’s hefty price tag of $10,000 in 1984 was considered too great a risk to take and sales were poor. In 1986, the Lisa was renamed the Macintosh XL and fitted with an emulator to run Mac OS.
