P.S.: To see mine, right click on the picture and click "view image" (*sorry, I'm a non native) or similar to watch it in full resolution.
The Next looks good but so does the 128. - Keep in mind that this device is more than 35 years older than the Next!

I think NEXT has a beautiful design, much better than old Speccy Toastrack.

Some people prefer old classic rubbery 48k style.

To be honest: To me the 16k/48k is THE ZX Spectrum.

The Toastrack is the most "worth collecting" and the Next is "best of show" from the technical point of view. The +3 also should be mentioned, as it is one of the ZX Spectrums I really like to use...
(ZX-Uno boards by the way are my all day drivers... (Where "all day" is the retro day's I'm using these devices - usually in winter time...))

Lucky as I am, I've got an unused 48k and one with an untouched case to get the feeling of the 80th and a patched Portugese 48k for all day retro use.

As to me the original 48k looks much better, I think I will replace the Portugese case to an original one. But surely the "original" Spectrum to me is the best to be used.
