I picked up a ton of vintage computers here last week. Included were these three, among lots of others.

What do you all know about these (well, I do know about the IIE, but wondered about the others. I seem to need boot disks for the Lisa and Compaq, but they do seem to be working)?

Good haul!

Funny how those Apple IIe spacebars always seem to discolour that way. Mine looked the same before de-yellowing.

Interesting shape the Lisa. There is almost something "animal-like" about it. Like it's ready to pounce!

If that is a boot error on the screen then the Widget drive might be shot.

I thought it was just because I don't have any boot software. Should it boot on it's own without a disk put in? I will have to plug it in again and see what it says here, can't remember.

Unless the OS was not installed on the drive it should boot from it.
I got a bunch of Lisa 3 1/2" floppies imaged someplace on my server. If you want to try them I could see if I can zip them up and email them to you. Also, where is your mouse?

EDIT: better yet, Just look here. Software galore.
