Yes, the LISA are much more rarer and have an unique appeal. I would trade the Turbo Color having in mind to get another one as fast as possible Smile

Absolutely, in fact I would trade a few TurboColor systems (without monitors) for a LISA. Do you have one you are wanting to trade for?

If the LISA has the 5mb hard disk, for sure. There are copies of Lisa Xenix floating around, and that'd be awesome to run!

But then again a Lisa can't nativley connect to the internet, unlike a NeXT...

I think for all these "should I trade" questions one need to simply weigh the cost of a versus b. But then you may want to consider the sentimental value of what you may give up as well.

SO if you are going to trade your NeXT for something more rare it might seem like a good deal but if that NeXT was your original one that you had you may not.
Example, i have some vintage macs. I would probably trade some for a more rare computer system but I wouldn't trade any one I actually used "back in the day" as my main computer.

if there is not sentimentality involved, trade it, sell the Lisa, buy a new turbo color, and you'll still have money to spare!

The mathematical way of looking at what i wanted to say above is:

IF (value of your computer)+( sentimental value of your computer) << (value of rare computer) + (desire for rare computer) THEN trade

sounds like a close call here Razz

Yes.
Also, if you know the right people *shifty eyes* you can also get hold of Lisa floppy images.
