Should be possible.

You wouldn't need to buy a Palm. Palm Desktop 2.x for Mac (formerly
Claris Organizer) is available free on Palm's web site for anyone to
download. It also comes with most recent MacOS updates (such as 9.x) and
most new Macs.

You CAN sync your Newton with a Palm Desktop file, too, although there
are limitations (mostly caused by the Palm Desktop side). Just make sure
you try synching with a DIFFERENT file than Palm Desktop is currently set
to use (because the Instant Palm Desktop extension keeps it open at all

Also bear in mind that Palms and Palm Desktop are MUCH MORE LIMITED than
your Newton; some of your fields may not sync properly; you'll have to
"dumb down" your data to match the limits of the Palm Desktop and Outlook
