Apple hardware priced so high that no one wants to buy it? It's 1983 all over again

Workstations

Lisa price should be compared to comparable 68K machines of the period. Google for 68k workstations.

Computer market was *very* different at that time; there were very specialised machines that could cost hundred of thousands of dollars for a single workstation.

Anyway, i would consider the Lisa as a needed transition machine to the creation of the Mac.

By the way, my understanding is that the relationship with Xerox was a little bit more than a casual visit ... would be happy to have more information on the subject.
