NeXT cubes aren't going to come down in price, they're cult machines same as
Apple Cubes are (Apple Cubes can cost more now then they did when they were

A low end cube:-
Cube 68040 25mhz, 64mb RAM , New 2Gb Seagate Barracuda HD with User,
Developer 3.3 and Y2K Patch installed  
A snip at $995.00
(from http://www.blackholeinc.com/specials/blackhardware.shtml )

Of course if you want the awsome power of the 33MHz version then you're
looking at $2,995 

Apple paid $600 million to gets their hands on the NeXT OS, why should you
get it any cheaper? ;-)

ipx? that's webserver material ;-)


That also used to be on my wish list but I jumped a few generations in
sun hardware.  

The next captures have got to be an SGI machine (at last they are coming
down to realistic prices and soon will enter the blagging zone) and a
next cube (if they ever come down to realistic prices, pocket calculator
power @ space shuttle prices).  But if anyone has a bebox, archimedies
or falcon lying around these too will probably end up running debian at
chateau sparkes ;-)
