Except for very easy repair, you won't find anybody that can perform repairs
like Apple can do.

What do you mean, it is no longer supported? Did you follow the procedure
detailed in the FAQ when calling Apple for Newton support?

brute force adj.: Describes a primitive programming style, one in which the programmer relies on the computer's processing power instead of using his or her own intelligence to simplify the problem, often ignoring problems of scale and applying naive methods suited to small problems directly to large ones. The term can also be used in reference to programming style: brute-force programs are written in a heavyhanded, tedious way, full of repetition and devoid of any elegance or useful abstraction (see also brute force and ignorance).
