No, I think GEM is just pining for suckers (or collectors with more money
than brains). But they must be selling stuff at those prices because
*someone* is buying. I would rather have 6 used 2100s for the same money and
have enough spare parts to last the next 20 years. I'm not afraid of opening
the thing up to put in an accelerator or replace a skanky backlight (oh, did
I say "skank"? hope I didn't offend any strippers subscribing to the list).
Just keep in mind that even though the Newton is a great platform and a lot
of fun--it is obsolete and bulky, and nobody is writing any sexy new modern
programs for it. Anyone who believes otherwise is delusional.
