Early adopters of the iPhone weren’t the only ones receiving in-store credit from Steve Jobs.  In an overlooked announcement, Jobs said that early adopters of the Apple Lisa would be receiving a $7000 in-store credit.

Apple LisaApple released the Lisa in January of 1983 for $9,995, and the similar Macintosh was released a year later for $2,495.

“I’ve felt bad about people who bought the Lisa for a long time. Anybody who bought one of the first Apple Lisas really got screwed,” said Jobs. “Now that we’ve got some cash, I think it’s about time we made it right.”

Steve Bloughs, who bought a Lisa, said, “When I heard about the iPhone refund, I was furious.  The Lisa screw job was much more egregious.  I’ve been waiting over twenty years for Apple to make this right.  I’m glad they finally have.”

Apple representatives said that consumers shouldn’t expect a refund every time a product bombs or prices drop.  These two cases were the “exception rather than the rule.”
