Lots of stuff - use it as a web server (put lots of Newton packages
on it, and surf there with your Newton to reload/install anew), use
it as a home automation controller (check out -
they still have a version that will run on a Mac Plus, which I did
for a bit), use it for backups/restores, set it up as a beginner's
machine and give it to a family member, ah the list goes on and on...
