Remember This? NeXT Computer

While this may be news to a lot of readers, NeXT produced a very cool, high performance (and expensive) personal computer back in 1988. The company was founded by Steve Jobs and others in 1985 after he was ousted from Apple.

Apart from being a forward-looking cutting-edge product, the NeXT computer is notable for the fact that its Unix-based NeXTSTEP operating system would later evolve into Apple OS X, following Apple's purchase of NeXT  in 1996 - and also vindicate Steve Jobs and help solidify his reputation as a visionary technologist.

Take a look below at the late Mr. Jobs doing a demo on the NeXT computer, highlighting some of the notable features (remarkable for the time).
