Does anyone have information on the serial number ranges for cubes and slabs?  I wasn't able to find information on how high the AAK series went before switching to ABB, etc.  How high did the ABB series go (total units)?

Thanks,

I don't really have much info on NeXT serial numbers. I do have a mono turbo slab with a serial number of ABB0051869 which was originally purchased on January 6, 1993.  I've read that NeXT built a small number of units during the summer of 1993, after official production had stopped.  I don't know how these serial numbers relate to actual production numbers though.

Here's a few links about NeXT workstation production.  They don't mention serial numbers but offer some details on production numbers.  The first link details some sales figures and the second one talks a bit about the final production run.
