The NeXTstation was an "affordable" version of Steve Jobs' hardware platform that ran the NeXTStep operating system. This machine has a 68040 processor which was fairly high end at the time. These NeXT machines are becoming quite rare because there were only around 50,000 units sold of all the various models and many have since stopped working. This one produces only 4 colors (black, white and two shades of gray) and comes with a proprietary monitor. It has a high resolution of 1120 � 832 and the sound output is built right into the monitor (this is different from the color models). NeXT machines play a significant role in the evolution of the Internet, since these were the machines that first ran web browsers and servers.
