A boy and his computers

PCWorld article on a guy at Livermore who has actually finished what most of us have already started in attics, garages, and bonus rooms around the country:

In the first purchase of his collection, Sellam Ismail loaded the trunk of his car with old computers he stumbled upon at a flea market for $5 apiece. Soon he had filled his three-car garage with what others would consider obsolete junk.

Bonus: it’s worth money.

The pride of his collection is an Apple Lisa, one of the first computers (introduced in 1983) with a now standard graphical interface. Such items sell for more than $10,000.
