Translation
Translated via Google Translate:

This is the unique Apple Lisa 1, the Twiggy Lisa. Experienced collectors know about the rarity of this historical computer. Just as rare as an Apple 1, Kenbak-1 or Xerox Alto. The number of surviving Lisa 1 is estimated at 50-100 pieces worldwide. I am an experienced collector and it took years of searching to find such a rarity. Now I give this chance to a serious collector to own the Holy Grail of Apple.

The condition of this Lisa 1 is documented as in the pictures. The case and all components are in uniquely good condition. I have never seen a Lisa in this condition. No scratches and no damage. Since this Apple has always been protected from UV radiation, the cosmetic state is almost unchanged. The case has a very nice bright and original color. So also the unique front panel that makes up a Lisa 1. Also, the optical condition of the boards and the drives is flawless.

The Lisa 1 started in a test run without problems. During a test of the drives, the floppy disk was ejected with an error message.

See pictures.

The Apple Lisa 1 computer is sold in this condition, exactly as described and documented on pictures.

Here are: Apple profiles, keyboard, mouse, manuals, floppy disks and The Lisa 1.

Clarify ambiguities please before making a purchase.
This is a private sale, not a return. No warranty.

If I were making a $50K purchase, I'd be hesitant to rely on Google Translate.

Hey thank you for the translation. 

Google translation worked surprisingly well. That’s exactly what I wrote.

Why don’t you get the drive

Why don’t you get the drive professionally repaired before selling the Lisa.   A working set of twiggy in a Lisa-1 is would get more money.  Also I’d suggest an auction house for the sale and not eBay if you want maximum value.  I have an eBay search setup on my phone to tell me about any Lisa stuff and it didn’t detect your sale because it was in Germany.  This limits your potential buyers if eBay is not alerting on items outside of the potential buyers country or region.  

 

Cheers,

Corey

Hello

Hello Corey,

 

thanks for the answer. I have a problem finding someone fixing the twiggies in my region. I know there is one man in the us fixing twiggies, but I don’t know him. If it doesn’t sell I might relist it at the international eBay site. I think the price is fair.
