A NeXT workstation in Brighton

NeXTstationFor many years I’ve wondered if there were any NeXT systems in my home town. Search results certainly brought up mirrors at University of Brighton many years ago or promotional announcements of classic UNIX workstation vendors such as Solborne for University of Sussex. End of last summer I received a pleasant message from Luke on twitter to say one had been found sitting around in a disused room that had been locked for many years .

grazed NeXT logo
Despite the grazed logo, system is in great condition. The status of the system is unknown due to the lack of peripherals. It’s just the slab. By the logo it appears to be a stock mono NeXTstation. I’ll leave it connected to the power before I try and power it up NeXT week!
