About NextComputing
NextComputing is best known for inventing the flextop computer, a personal supercomputer about the size of a briefcase that houses extreme performance processors by Intel and AMD. Intended for those applications strenuous enough to outgrow even the NextBook17E, the company's family of NextDimension flextops rivals the most powerful standalone graphics workstations and rackmount servers. The NextBook line fills the gap between a typical laptop and a flextop, providing maximum performance in an inexpensive package.
