Who needs a serial port when you can use WiFi? I have a G4-500AGP in my office that I switch on specifically for an AppleTalk Bridge. I'm able to connect my Newton using a USB WiFi dongle on the G4 (in Ad Hoc mode) at high speed to NCU and NTK running under Classic mode.


Never under-estimate a Mac that can still run Classic.
