I have a newton 2100, with pc cable (dongle attached).
Also have a dongle (in case you want to use a mac or
keyboard). The backlight is strong. The screen has one
ding and two hairline scratches which I honestly do
not notice. I can include a 2 mb flashcard. Unit still
has the plastic flash card guards and door cover and
original "titanium" pen. Unit is in English.
I can also include a really nice Asera 4 in 1 PDA pen
(black pen, red pen, pencil, and PDA pen tip) with a
sweet metal grip - definitely an engineers tool with
pen case. Batteries are perfectly fine, recharge in 5
I can also include *4* different cd roms with just
about _every software that was made for the newton and
PC/Mac prior to about 2001!
This is an original 2100 not an upgrade. It runs under
Note that the unit does not have the following:
1) Keyboard. I have a keyboard but really don't want
to sell it.
2) AC power supply. I have one, but really don't want
to sell it.
3) Dongle destroyer - I don't have one, the unit's
connector port works just fine
4) Audio dongle - I don't have one
5) Accellerator board - they do exist I don't have one
As to software, I can load this with whatever you want
prior to shipping it to you! For example a French
localisation kit, a German localisation kit. You tell
me your needs, I'll tell you what freeware there is,
if there isn't I'll at least load you up with 30 day
What can a newton 2100 do?
* Voice recording. You want to make a voice note, its
in the palm of your hand.
* Read books aloud to you - unit includes a voice
* Word processing: NewtWorks includes a word processor
which you can export as .RTF (readable by M/S word)
*Internet/Email: You can also use this for internet
browsing and even as a web server. There are several
internet browsers and telnet like programs for the
The only down side to this unit is that I really don't
want to sell the ac adaptor. Ac adaptors can be had on
ebay for around 25 dollars/euros.
If its so good why am I selling it?
Well, its several megs of ram, a couple hundred mhz,
huge screen. Really the newt is a tablet PC. I'm
selling because I need the cash, its that simple. I
also have a semens pocket reader, an olivetti davinci,
and an aiptek pen camera which I would be willing to
Why am I not selling it on E-Bay?
List has been nice to me and want to make sure newt
goes to a good home and not some pound.
Basically if anyone is interested please contact me
engleerica_at_yahoo.com off list. Some of what I have
may interest you or not at all so I think its better
to negotiate since. I'd obviously prefer to sell this
as a unit, but am willing to split bits if needed.
I'm also willing to make you any newton book you want
from any public domain work available on the internet!
Anyway I live in Germany though I'm willing to ship
