LisaTerminal allows Lisa to ac-
cess central mainframes and
minicomputers by emulating
VT100, VT52, and TTY terminals.
LisaTerminal gives you the best
of both worlds: access to the in-
formation you need from other
computers, plus the conven-
ience and cost effectiveness of
working with the information off-
line on Lisa. Moreover, data from
the host computer can easily be
integrated into LisaWrite for ad-
ditional text processing and
In less than 30 minutes you'll

Terminal. Lisa's revolutionary
graphics and mouse technology
replace confusing computer
commands with simple graphic
images. Graphics, together with
the mouse, a simple selecting
device, let you create, revise,
and print documents intuitively.
And because basic operations
work the same way in all Lisa
applications, you'll learn other
applications in even less time.
