> 2.) What is the maximum memory card size for Newton OS 1.x?

I don't know, but I've been using a 20 MB card for years without problems. However, I've hardly ever used more than 5 MB of it, because you either run out of heap or your Extras drawer gets full. You can use NewtCase to solve both of these problems, but it can get kind of messy, and it's too slow for frequent use.

So I think it's best to get more smaller cards if you want to store packages on it. But for data and backups (note: the built-in backup functionality in 1.x can only do full backups), it's OK.
