What the icons meant?




First personal computer with a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Operative System, it used windows, pointers, icons, mouse, etc., it was a tremendous business failure in part due to it high price and because it wasn´t compatible with Apple II, Apple released an improved version, Lisa 2, but it wasn´t neither a sucessfully machine, at last Apple rebuild the computer and maked it Macintosh compatible and released as Macintosh XL.


A huge stock of non selling machines were buried in a Nevada desert.
