Somewhat irrelevant to many Newton users since most of us have at least one
Flash RAM card (the MP2x00 series you specifically mention have two PCMCIA
slots). If/when Paul Guyot completes the ATA driver, the individual user's
available chump change will be the only limit to available storage.

Many of us have been using Ethernet connections since Farallon first came
out with their PN595 2 years ago. If your cable modem provider does DHCP or
static IP and hasn't implemented something stupid like PPPoE, you're fine.

Sorry - don't use either platform. However, many Mac Newton users have been
syncing with Palm Desktop/Claris Organizer for some time (and they do it
over EtherTalk, not serial cradle).

Dependent on machine setting and what else is loaded and running. It's also
dependent on how you write (cursive vs print).
