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


In the mid-80s I had my first job as a tech author for Ferranti Computer Systems Ltd. At that time the tech author team was writing by hand in pencil then giving our precious words to a typist. I heard there was a thing called an Apple Lisa on site somewhere so I found it and played with it a few times. It was mostly neglected anyway, God knows why it was there. I was astonished by the wysiwig interface, it seemed incredibly futuristic at that time. Loved the mouse and being able to directly format a document. Think I made a nice CV on it.
