If the screen is in good shape, then I'd say it's a pretty good deal. There
are a few web sites that will explain how to do overclocking (Ed Kummel will
most likely stand up with his site) and there was also Stephanie Mak that
had done it. Once it's overclocked, most Ethernet cards still work. I don't
think I've heard any report while using a wireless card, but since the final
version of the wireless driver has just been released, maybe we'll get some
feedback from someone with an accelerated Newton. Your 32MB card will still
work. Sound will sound slightly high pitch, and serial connection won't
work, but everything else should be fine.
