"I get my jollies building good computers," says Steven P. Jobs, 27, chairman of Apple Computer. Critics of Apple's product line might assume Jobs hasn't had a good belly laugh in some time. Apple's first, and, so far, only big winner is the Apple II, six years old and showing signs of age. But during the past three years Apple as been working on a new computer called Lisa.
