I use my newton with windows and mac, On my faster windoze pc's (like
PIII and higher) I have to use a app to slow down the cpu or else I find
that the pc attempts to punch too much info into the newt though the
serial connection, If I connect with appletalk OR serial with my mac; no
problem. The little app I use is called "slowdown.exe" nothing fancy
just public domain. Punch it into google and you should come up trumps.

You shouldn't have any problems as long as you have the right cable
(newton to pc). Download Newton Connection Utilities from if
you don't already have it. You will need to set some initial
configuration settings (com port, etc) and then you should be ready to

Plug the cable into the PC, plug the other side into the newton, select
"connect" from the extras menu and click the connect button.

This is the short version. Contact me off list if you need further help.
