What is max ram and what 'type' is required? Is there 'vram' I can install and again, what 'type'? Finally, what type of Laser Printer connection etc. I am working on writing various individual works as a first project with this computer! keep me up to date on whatever else I might need to know, I am new to NeXT, just never had time to get around to it, I find these forums really stimulating and am Happy to be involved!

It depends on whether you have the "turbo" chip set or not. You can tell by the number of memory slots. The non-turbos have 8 slots & you are limited to 32 MB IIRC.
The turbo boards have 4 slots and will accept four 32 MB 72 pin SIMMs for a total of 128 MB of ram.
NeXT spec'd 70 ns SIMMs, but 60 ns works just fine, at least on the turbo systems. I know Fast Page Memory works (again on turbo's) and I've read that EDO works as well, but I've not tried it. You want non-parity SIMMs. Parity works, but supposedly, slows the system down.
If you are talking about connecting to the NeXT Laser printer, a standard straight through M to M DB-9 cable (or M to F + gender changer) will work in place of the NeXT Cable.
If you are talking about connecting to other printers, I believe there is software (Jet Pilot?) available to run the HP Laser Jet II or maybe III?
