wow, nice! In a few months I'll score another NeXT from someone and start beefing it up. I think I'll go for a Cube this time. Get as much software and hardware accessories as possible Smile

Could you help a /b/rotha' (inside joke) out?
I joined the cube ranks this weekend after placing an order for a bare 040 cube. Very Happy .....but no peripherials. Sad
can you spare a soundbox cable as well as a matching keyboard, mouse and soundbox? No need for a mono monitor (I hope). I'm trying to get a dimension board off a fellow member.

Notice how everyone is sucking up now?

Nice score Chef!
Once you get over the thrill of having a pile o' NeXT in your home, I'd be interested in helping to defray the expense by taking one of the color turbo slabs off your hands.
It would be nice to have a color system to go with my turbo cube!

That is definitely in the works, so everyone who might want one be thinking about it. They are mainly Color and ColorTurbo stations, but will be complete with soundbox, cables, keyboard, and mouse (unless you do not want them). They will be loaded with NS 3.3, but an upgrade to OS4.2 can probably be arranged for those who would like Wink .

Hopefully I can throw a few up on ebay in order to defray a good amount of the cost, as for the rest, I am open to other offers by PM for those in here who are interested.

The stuff is here .. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

It appears to be 25-30 systems, most color turbos with ADB soundbox/KB/Mouse. I am not 100% sure yet if they are all turbos, as I have not gotten to the systems yet. I just finished sorting through all the cables, keyboards, soundboxes, mice, software and manuals, and that alone filled 6 copy paper boxes and two longer boxes for the keyboards. Looks like NS versions from 3.0 to 3.3 are all represented, along with a copy of WriteNow and WordPerfect as well. On the docs side, at least one complete developers manual set, along with a bunch of setup and getting started manuals. Some laser printers, four I think judging from the number of printer cables I have, but I can only see 2 from the outside of the skid. I will start breaking down the rest of the skid tomorrow so I can inventory all the systems and see what I actually have.

What is the difference between ADB stuff & the non-ADB stuff?

Are they interchangeable, i.e., would non ADB stuff work on a system that originally came with ADB stuff?

Well see how lucky I am, as I spent way to much money on this. most of it in freight. Lets just say I could have snagged a dual headed cube setup off of ebay for what I ended up spending on this.

I did not buy it as an investment, but I do at least hope to cover the shipping costs.

So who needs an ADB soundbox or two, or twenty ;)

I will open up a new thread in the marketplace once I get an idea of what I have available.

My impression is that an ADB capable system can use non-ADB peripherals, but not the other way around. Others can chime in, but I think you need a turbo system, or non turbo with a turbo capable rom version in order to use ADB stuff.
