Is it a Lisa????? Is it a Macintosh????

Recommended Posts

I am assuming the Mac keyboard interface works but it would be cool to put a Mac keyboard into a Lisa shell so it would look totally like a Lisa.

Sorry to revive this 5 years later but I obtained a similar 128K board with a stack of ram. The lot also included empty Lisa case with non-standard PSU in which the board had been. The seller had modified the board and Lisa by himself (afaik) and he used to work at it department of a local university. I haven’t tried it out but if there are some questions you’d like to ask, I can reach out to him.

I will. There are 4 other compact macs and various analog and logic boards so I’ll try to sort them out first. That stacked memory logic board just stroke as was it couldn’t fit a compact case so asked the guy how he had been running it.

Would this even fit into a Macintosh shell?

It would at least need bending the frame as the board wouldn’t be able to slide in with those RAM towers.

He used Lisa shell for it.

Please find attached some more pictures. The power supply is with AT connector and has been attached to the Lisa monitor power in. Then Lisa’s video / logic board connector is sliced and a regular Mac compact connector has been connected to it. I know nothing about Lisa connectors so my assumptions might be totally wrong. That scsi cable is interesting. There is no scsi in 512K so it might be this has been used as test bed for fixing compact logic boards. 
 

Does someone know what is that stick with three wires?
