    For all you NeXT fans, there are a few on eBay right now. If you're looking to buy one, here's your chance.

    I wish I could buy a NeXT Computer..They're important to Apple's history despite them not even being a Mac, in my opinion. I bet they were "the" computers back in the day.

    NeXT Cube- http://cgi.ebay.com/NeXTcube-Dimension-RARE-Vintage-NeXT-cube-computer-/270767985527?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f0b079377

    NeXT TurboColor- http://cgi.ebay.com/Next-TurboColor-Complete-System-Low-S-ABC005358-Works-/150612527559?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item231134c9c7

    All over priced in my opinion. If you get all the software licenses with the first listing, then that one isn't terribly priced.

    Oh yea, I have a 25Mhz B&W pizza box NextStation, in storage at the moment. These were nice machines in their time.

    You would lose that one if anyone was geeking out on a *nix work station back then it was a SGI machine they wanted...

    True, but to be fair, SGI was playing on a completely different level than NeXT too. I remember drooling over NeXT hardware because the PC and Mac were my spheres of experience. SGI was a completely different ballgame, and most of us mere mortals didn't even fathom the idea of owning one until the Indy was released. :)

    For the "uber" Mac nerds (like myself), they were. PC nerds salivated over other high end machines (I wouldn't know what, as I wasn't into PCs).

    I sold my last NeXT a few months ago, got about £100 for it but wasn't really trying. Sold to a friend.

    IIRC, his collection of NeXT workstations are quite substantial. Plus he had a few BeOS boxes as well.

    BTW, if you ever see a vm image for NeXTStep or OpenStep drop me a line. I cannot get it going on my machine.

    Blast from the past. That is the first machine I learned how to code on in college.
