The very positive thing about the Newton is that all parts are mounted with
removable connections, thus screws and snap-in things only. All you need is
a large table, patience and a certain knowledge to open the snap-ins of the
rear cover. This is the hardest part, IMHO, but there are several
instructions which describe more or less detailed how to not damage the
snappers. I hate especially those beside the pen holder. On the first Newton
I tried to open I've damaged one of these...

The strange thing is that there are differences between Newtons. Some open
totally easy and some not, but require e.g. a different sequence of pressure
and pulling force under different angles. I assume that Apple has a secret
'how to open' instruction.

With best regards / Viele Gruesse
