I want your opinion. Which one is the winner?
More modern and sophisticated Apple Cube G4 or more earlier and older Next Cube?

Both of Cubes have the same father Very Happy

oddly enough, i just recently added a g4 500 cube to my shopping list. AHEAD of the next cube. (unless i can get a smokin' deal on one.) due to racer x, i now want a cube/rhapsody set-up.

What I would like to see would be NeXT cube styling in a MacCube size. The black macmini/maccube mod that was posted elsewhere is an awesome look, but I prefer the black metal look of the NeXT to plexiglass. Some of the "small G5 mac" fabrications seen on the macmod sites look awesome as well.

Does anyone have detailed schematics of the NeXT cube that could be scaled down to MacCube size? It would be interesting to create a rendering at the smaller size, and display it side by side with a MacCube using photoshop magic, to get a feel of how it would look.

I really can't vote for either in this poll. As an owner of both, I like each equally for their own strengths. Plus it's hard to compare two machines that are generations apart.

So my position is: The poll is flawed with out a both button.

NeXT Cube hands down, although I remember quite clearly drooling over the g4 Cube when it came out! Mr. Green

For me its the G4 Cube - and not just only 'cause i like PPC Very Happy . The Desing is (as much as i can tell having both machines seen only in photographs Crying or Very sad ) not as much a "brick" as the NeXT Cube. I for myself think the "PizzaBox" NeXTStation is the best Hardwarecasing they made and clearly one of the best ever made.

could you expand on that a little? i'm very pleased with the design of the nextstation. and without the dimension board, the cube seems to be a much less efficient use of space. also, im curious what makes the ns one of the best ever made. i did notice it seems well made, easy to open, and very rugged if thats what you had in mind.

Now this is more like it, for the "cube" look. I wonder how it would look in black, with a NeXT logo on each side instead of the apple one, or mabey better yet just a NeXT logo on the front. An oldie but goodie for those who have not seen it before.

Well what terms do you apply in order to value casedesings in general? Clearly there is aesthetics - the slim box just looks great - the proportions are extremly well done, compare with other computercasings.
The design fits the purpose extremly well, think of the cooling ribs for the powersupply wich are part of the case (i dont think i've seen something like that until now). I like the part where it consists only of two parts wich are extremly easy to open (ok there are many more of these out there but also many who don't so it's worth mentioning) except for the screw (winner in easy opening is definitively the indigo2s case - no screws at all Very Happy - but if it's open thats where the mess starts)

These are just a few thoughts wich came in mind, i'm sure one could describe it better than that.

And i admit; until now i haven't that many computers to compare to - just about 13 i guess Very Happy and a few i've seen somwhere else
