The NeXTcubeTM computer is the expand-
able NeXT computer for people who
need maximum configuration flexibility in
mass storage and memory. It can also
be used as a server on a network.

NeXT computers use Display PostScript for both screen
imaging and printing. This makes two key things possible:
First, what you see on the screen is precisely what you get
when you print. Second, it means that imaging happens in
the NeXT computer--not in the printer. So there's no need for
the printer to have its own processor. That's why the NeXT 400
dpi Laser Printer is one of the most affordable printers around.
The NeXTcube offers a tremendous
amount of power and performance--
all in a one-foot magnesium cube. It
uses the powerful Motorola 68040 CPU
and Motorola 56001 DSP. As your needs
change, you can add more memory. You
can also add up to three boards to the
NeXTcube, simply by plugging them into
the NeXTbus.TM For instance, you might
consider adding a NeXTdimensionTM
color board.
