Lisa 2 an economical reliable computer
In 1984 we were a smallish firm plagued by computer salesmen. None of us had computer knowledge so our method was to send our copy typist for 2 hours, if she could do some constructive part of her work we would send the next person for 2 hours. We got to me the boss and I found simplicity and a screen we could understand. We bought a Lisa 2 with dot matrix printer at £10,000. It sounded a lot but without a single lesson we became computer literate created spreadsheets of considerable complexity and letter and report writing satisfactory to auditors and regulators in the insurance industry. No additional cost for software or training while competitors were using IBM and MS-DOS. That machine ran for 11 years without any problems. It was not expensive overall and everyone was happy to use it. I think your article is not worth reading.
