Next from NeXT

Send Article to a Friend

Manuel Bouyssou from Paris reports that the first 68040 machine on the market will probably be the next NeXT (perhaps the NeXT YeT? This is another name that's going to be difficult, much like the upgrade to Symantec's MORE, which was called MORE II, but which many people felt should have been called Still MORE.) The 68040 will run at 50 MHz and the black box will contain 8 megabytes of memory, a faster floptical drive with access times around 40 to 45 milliseconds, and an internal 300 megabyte hard drive. Although Steve Jobs has said that a color NeXT will be available this year, it is not clear if the 68040 will include color. Upgrades will be available and considering the modular construction of the cubes, should be an easily-performed motherboard swap.
