maybe for your particular store, but the lisa was a huge failure.

they were very slow and only had lisa workshop apps. there's a shitload
of them in a landfill.

on the other hand, they're rare and now sought by collectors,
particularly the original lisa with the (awful) twiggy drive. 

apple offered a free upgrade to the lisa ii with a 3.5" floppy, and
nearly everyone who had the origina lisa took advantage of the offer,
making an original unmodified lisa *very* rare and very valuable.
