I've enjoyed reading this list for a long time via the archives, but

NeXTstation TurboColor and matching LaserPrinter must go. Turbocolors
aren't particularly rare, I know, though this one is a particularly

* 64 MB RAM, internal 2GB disk and 2.88MB floppy.
* external 2 GB Barracuda disk (currently the boot drive)

* N4006 NeXT 17" color monitor (Trinitron tube, 72Hz)
* NeXT 400dpi LaserPrinter with 2 original paper cartridges and 2
* Complete original NEXTSTEP 3.3 media with NeXT and Intel boot

This machine was originally purchased from Rob Blessin of blackholeinc
and was my primary home workstation from 1996-2000. I haven't used it

I'll entertain any reasonable offer from someone willing to pick it up.
