Hardware, Embedded Systems "NeXT Computer (the original 68030 cube) was a high end workstation that was manufactured between 1988 - 1990. Back then it was a very expensive machine as a complete system would start at $6500 (in 1988 dollars). The machine is a 1 foot cube magnesium case that houses the computer. At the time, its performance was impressive, with a Motorola 68030 CPU running at a screaming 25Mhz, a dedicated floating point CPU, and a digital signal processor built into the system. NeXT cubes featured a magneto-optical drive that stored a whopping 256 Megabytes (by comparison, high end Mac systems at the time might have featured a 20 Megabyte hard drive.) In its day, this was the "Ferrari" of desktop systems!" No new information for the average OSNews reader, but lots of beautiful photos for a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

I think this kind of culture becomes popular since Apple's "PC vs Mac" advertisements. I think this just spreads hate everywhere and brings negative impact on people mind.

Nah, it was just like that since the begining of home computing.

ZX Spectrum vs C64 vs Apple II vs Sam Coupé vs ....

Nintendo vs Atari vs Sega vs ...

Atari ST vs Amiga vs PC vs Mac vs ...

People seem to want to be assured they are on the right side.

Nowadays I don't care any longer as long as I can do my work.
