      The retrochallenge is now more based on processor (around the
1993-1994 era) instead of by a particular date which means since the Pre
March 1993 date is out, NEWTONS ARE IN! (That was the part I hated most
about the contest... no Newtons.)

      I talked him into the ARM610, which would mean Newton 100-130.

      StrongArm (Newton 2x00) would beat the pants off the 80486 and
68040 so no way on those...

      ARM710 (E-mate) not likely but not decided either.


      Looks like I'll be carrying a Newton 120 next month. ;)


      Or maybe a 110... be fun to revisit.
