Be sure to check the battery! I saw a Lisa on EEVblog that met a horrible 
end. Rotted out more thoroughly than any Amiga I've ever seen with battery 

It reminds me, I should probably pull my Dad's Lisa 2 out of storage next 
time I visit and give it a good looking over.

I have found NeXT machines to age pretty well. If they don't fire right up 
just give the battery a change.
