    NeXT computer, made by NeXT in the United States from 1988.

    NeXT collaborated with the Higher Education sector to develop a workstation computer intended to be used by students and academic organisations. Priced around $6500 when it was released, the NeXT computer was intended to be 'the first computer of the 1990s'.

    The NeXT computer was used by Sir Tim Berners-Lee to devise the World Wide Web and acted as the world's first ever web server.
