NeXT Cube

Long before the Power Mac G4 Cube, Steve Jobs created the NeXT Cube, a 12" black box with more power than any Macintosh then available. The NeXT Cube was innovative in many ways: It used Postscript both to display images on its four-shade grayscale monitor and to print them out on its 400 dpi laser printer. The Cube incorporates a Motorola 56001 digital signal processor (DSP) to process graphics in real time.

Like OS X, which is descended from it, the NeXTstep operating system was firmly rooted in Unix.

One almost prescient feature: like the 1998 iMac, the 1988 NeXT Cube had no floppy drive.
