The NeXTstation was a light version of the NeXTcube.
The magnetic-optical drive has been replaced by a hard-disk, as NeXTcube users found this drive too slow compared to "modern" hard-disks available then.
The thin design of the case didn't make it possible to keep the NeXTbus slots.
There were several models, including a NeXTstation (25 Mhz), a ColorStation with color display (4096 colors, 25 Mhz) and a ColorStation Turbo (33 Mhz).
Thanks to Computers Forever for his help.
There is a nice NeXT turbo color 33Ghz on eBay at the moment, current bid is £10 - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280996984384

I bought a NeXTstation turbo mono about 2 years ago. I love the thing! It's amazing. I've upped mine to 128mb of ram among other things. I use it constantly.
i just got my hands on a Cube finally, the thing has been modified and holds 4 motherboards :) This thing is going to be sweet once i get it running correctly :D

I was lucky enough to buy a mono turbo slab complete with 400dpi laser printer.
The NeXT machines are very rare in Australia (who had the money to buy one?).
I used mine regularly untill recently (my mouse died).
I think this would have to be THE most amazing hardware I have ever owned!
